This week, we welcome back contributors Oriana Leckert and Matt Ruby to discuss the once again supposedly on the rise power couple of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner as well as the end of Lena Dunham’s Girls after a 6 season run on HBO that brought much criticism and praise. Also, Jacqueline Soller joins us to discuss the recently released Japanese film, Your Name., which is now the top-grossing animé of all time. And along the way, we hear from Radio Dispatch’s Molly Knefel with her take on the Tax Day protests, we learn about how artist and teach Builder Levy learned to express himself through photography, and we get an early listen to an exclusive performance by Fred Thomas from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
