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.
