Pauline Kael vs Andrew Sarris (2 Slate Culture Gabfest Discussions)

I thought these two (audio only) videos went quite well together and are interesting for any serious movie fans. The very excellent and erudite Slate Culture Gabfest podcast discussed Pauline Kael (my favourite ever movie critic) in late 2011 when two books came out about her. They discussed Andrew Sarris on his death in the summer of 2012 (and in it referred back to the Kael podcast).  The two critics had a kind of spat, were kind of opposed in their theories, but....well, just have a listen to find out more....
