Two expert TV watchers join us this week to get us up to speed on all of the new shows about scammers. Doreen St. Félix is a TV critic for The New Yorker and Shirley Li covers culture for The Atlantic. The two talk to Greta about Netflix’s current number one show Inventing Anna and if the pandemic should be included in television narratives.
Fiction writers are also wrestling with how to incorporate the pandemic into their work. New York Times reporter Alexandra Alter did a deep dive into how this quandary is affecting the publishing industry. We talk about the books that made it work and the ones that didn’t.
Plus, members of the U.S. women’s national team reach a $24 million equal pay settlement with the U.S. Soccer Federation. We talk to Fortune Magazine editor Emma Hinchliffe about what that means for the pay gap more broadly.
