Thanks, all for your lively conversation today.
Awrighty, Clashtalkers, we may as well do it here as opposed to in the comments of tomorrow morning’s Get/Out Media recaps.
It doesn’t look like Jez is going to cover this, but last night for the second time Full Frontal hosted their alternative to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
And a Harvard Kennedy School fellowship. And the corniest, most insufferable fellowship photo ever captured.

Are you listening? The podcast that launched a whole new true-crime boom is back with a...baseline? Season 3 is a mannered study over a full year in the Cleveland criminal court system.
