Still Processing

Wesley Morris and Jenna 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.


episode 120: Ziwe May Destroy Hamilton

“Hamilton” is back in the mix, but the flavor has changed from beloved historical blockbuster to “wait, that’s what this is?” Elsewhere, in new works like “Baited,” on Instagram Live, and “I May Destroy You,” on HBO, Black women are getting personal in ways that are expanding our palates for discomfort.

Discussed this week:

  • “Hamilton” (written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Disney+, 2020)
  • “Baited” on Instagram Live
  • Ziwe Fumudoh
  • “I May Destroy You” (written by Michaela Coel, HBO, 2020)
  • Native Land project
  • “White Fragility” lecture (by Robin DiAngelo, 2019)
