The New York Times
Wesley Morris and J Wortham are working it out in this weekly show about culture in the broadest sense. That means television, film, books, music — but also the culture of work, dating, the internet and how those all fit together.
I think Wesley Morris is absolutely killing it this season. His energy! His intellect, his fresh take on things usually taken for granted. I love this season of still processing. So good!!
I miss Jenna Wortham terribly but this episode really works with Wes and a Keanu Reeves biographer talking about the effect the actor had on him as a young a gay man in the eighties and nineties.
This might just be one of my new favorite shows - the hosts are absolutely brilliant. Really enjoyed this discussion on method acting and whether or not it has a place in modern film/TV.
Wesley and Jenna discuss the complicated legacy of Disney in their typically thoughtful way. These issues were on my mind, but their perspective added a new dimension for me.
I will listen to anything Jenna & Wesley do together, no matter how serious or unserious, but I love it when they take something that’s weighted with centuries of emotions and pain and lift the weight, just a bit. Excellent discussion that directly comments on a recent incident at the NYT (where they work).
