The Culture Show returns with another week in review in arts and culture! GBH's Jared Bowen is joined by Callie Crossley and Edgar B Herwick III to break down the latest headlines.

In the movie industry, straight-to-DVD is common practice but Warner Brothers has taken it to a new level: going straight to shelf. The studio has been scrapping films to get a tax break and U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro is calling on the Department of Justice to investigate.

From there, hip-hop legend André 3000 has released his first album in nearly 20 years — but instead of freestyling, it’s flute melodies. Is the world ready to hear one of the greatest rappers take us where the wind blows?

And Gwyneth Paltrow has joined the ranks of Jerry Springer and Anna Nicole Smith. With her recent ski trial now the stuff of a musical, the Goop goddess has entered the ripped-from-the headlines genre.

Finally, it’s the ultimate TV comfort food: season two of “Julia” hits Max this week. We’ll give our thanks for the original French Chef, Julia Child, and her words of wisdom: “With enough butter, anything is good.”

GBH’s The Culture Show airs Fridays from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Starting in December, the show will expand to airing daily in that time slot. Tune in to 89.7, or listen live on
