Latest episode

The best magazine. Sometimes a great podcast. Really don’t need the Biden propaganda though, or to be told how things the most important election. Perhaps try spinning the fact that it’s the least consequential election of our time, with the two worst candidates we’ve ever had.

Film Review

Is Justin Chang going to be another reviewer who hypes films like Mad Max? Can we never get beyond these Marvel films? Same thing over and over and over. What do they really feed in our culture?

Boring

The Adam Gopnik episode on March 22 told me absolutely nothing that I did not already know. I found it utterly boring and I was shocked to think this was somehow New Yorker worthy. Nothing intellectually stimulating here at all. There are so many more important issues to cover and to see this sludge get in the way makes me lose faith in this publication. We are literally watching tech companies take over nearly every facet of life in this country as they contribute to an incredible wealth gap fueled by anonymous greed, lobbyist corruption, and political opportunism. In 10 seconds I can come up with more valuable and intriguing story ideas than this.
