Your Weekend Starts Here: Awards Season, Everything Bagel Ice Cream And Remembering SOPHIE

Another year, another set of TV and movie award nominations with an almost uncanny disregard for artists of color.

We take a look at the snubs, the non-snubs and the rest of the week’s news with WBEZ Reset host Sasha-Ann Simons and audio producer Jonquilyn Hill, who’s the host of the Through The Cracks podcast from WAMU and PRX.

Then we talk with Jeni Britton Bauer, the creator of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, about a new flavor of cream cheese ice cream that includes — for some reason — sesame, garlic and onion. Yes, it’s weird!

And lastly, we take a moment to remember Grammy-nominated musician SOPHIE with the help of author and culture writer Sasha Geffen. SOPHIE died Sunday at the age of 34.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly identified Through the Cracks as an NPR podcast.
