Hosts of NPR’s Code Switch podcast, Gene Demby and B.A. Parker, join us to get into all of the things your friends are talking about this week. We discuss the delay of NASA’s rocket to the moon, Megan Thee Stallion’s cameo in the Marvel cinematic universe, and a massive tomato spill on a California highway.
Then, we talk to Camryn Jones, one of the stars of the new Amazon Prime series Paper Girls. It’s an adaptation of the sci-fi graphic novel series of the same name written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Cliff Chiang. Camryn plays Tiffany Quilkin, the nerdy, headstrong young girl who accidentally travels to the future with her three friends.
Plus, science says you probably underestimate the importance of checking in on your friends. University of Pittsburgh Professor Peggy Liu explains.
