Can Memes Swing the 2024 Election? Plus, Michelle Zauner on “Crying in H Mart”
I loved the recent episode with Brontez Purnell—feature more artists like Brontez!! I was excited to hear Jeffrey Masters voice because I loved his interviews on LGBTQ&A. I don't like every episode—like I was disappointed about how Clare Malone's conversation gave credence to right-wing "memes." But I'll stick around for conversations with artists like Brontez, Michelle Zauner, Jacqueline Novak, and others.
More like the New Yorker Radio Quarter Hour
Really learned a lot from Johnathan Blitzner & his ideas for the border, I think there are additional things to weigh in & that is the human trafficking that’s taking place,
bc if you looked at those coming across the border, one would find the thousands of $ dollars getting paid to coyotes & all that information is on their cellphones & WhatsApp, additionally, there’s no way the number of unaccompanied children would make it as far as they claim on their own
Thank you for the show, always informative & challenging
