Bruna Papandrea with More Big Little Lies
Bruna Papandrea, the powerhouse producer behind Big Little Lies, talks with Tina about the can’t-stream-it-soon-enough premiere of season two, including how the new episodes depict the corrosiveness of lies, the spiral of bad parenting inside those drool-worthy Monterrey beach houses, and the cool creepiness of a new character played by the almighty Meryl Streep.

Small Sanities, what both the right and the left get wrong about liberalism and why people who spit on the plate of civility might not deserve a seat at the table.
Andrew Gillum: Rising Democratic Star
Andrew Gillum, who missed making history as Florida’s first black governor in 2018 by less than half a percentage point, spoke with Tina about why, instead of running for office in 2020, he is focused on registering a million voters to help turn Florida blue and put a Democrat in the White House.
Phoebe Robinson: Comedy's New Queen
Comedian, beloved podcaster, and New York Times best-selling author Phoebe Robinson joins Tina to talk about her new tour, Sorry, Harriet Tubman; her latest book, Everything’s Trash but that’s Okay; and why Louis CK still has a lot of work to do before he should return to the stage.
This is my favourite podcast Tina! Love the guests, love the topics, love the interviews. Smart. More please!
Interviews that get me thinking (and talking about them with friends long after I’ve finished listening).
Brilliant, in depth interviews with a whole host of fascinating people. I love it.
