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 121: 'Waiter, There's a Fly in Our Bubble'

With a monumental election on the horizon, we want to bring up a few recent events that show some sort of truth amid the confusion. From the NBA bubble to the fly in Mike Pence’s hair to HBO's “Lovecraft Country”, these are moments that point us beyond the present, to be our best and greatest selves.

Discussed this week:

  • “Scandal” (Season 4, Episodes 9-12, ABC, 2015)
  • The N.B.A. bubble
  • The vice-presidential debate (Oct. 7, 2020)
  • “Lovecraft Country” (Episode 7, HBO, 2020)
  • Sun Ra
  • More Sun Ra
  • Even more Sun Ra
