A monument to the Boll weevil stands in Enterprise, Alabama.

Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam, hosts of The Dinner Party, join Madeleine for their weekly booster shot of cultural news. This week: a town in Alabama has a monument to the boll weevil. Also, Santa's delivery schedule demands a lot: according to calculations, he must deliver about 365,000 presents a second. Plus, listening to loud music could be making you drink more.

The Dinner Party airs on Sundays on KPCC at 3 p.m.
