Our editor and writers discuss the week that was in culture
On this exciting edition of the Book and Film Globe Week in Review podcast, recorded live on the Clubhouse app, editor-in-chief Neal Pollack shares his not-so-fond memories of summer camp. He talks to Maya Sinha about ‘The Unbroken Thread,’ a book of parental wisdom by the editorial page editor of The New York Post. Amanda Fortini stops by to discuss her review of the new Jhumpa Lahiri novel and the burgeoning genre of books about aimless child-free middle-aged women wandering the world while having existential crises.
Pablo Gallaga appears to discuss the anime boom and the popularity of ‘Demon Slayer: Mugen Train,’ and then he sticks around to offer his thoughts on ‘A Quiet Place: Part II.’ Last but never least, Stephen Garrett reviews ‘Cruella,’ and Joel Keller wonders aloud why daytime and late-night TV are still pretending like we’re at the height of the pandemic. Why listen to anything else?
