Waiting to X-hale

Oct 9, 2020

Wynter and Karen take a look back at SNL’s political coverage, especially its parodies of presidential debates past and present, as the show resumes production with a live studio audience. Is satire even possible in the political world we’re living in today? Trying with all her might not to get too caught up in the onslaught of news, from 45’s COVID cluster to the death of Eddie Van Halen, Wynter is in a transatlantic mood and tells us all about Emily in Paris. Karen can’t help but get into the Ryan Murphy Netflix series Ratched, which features Filipinos, lesbians, and a Sirkian aesthetic. Plus, nuo lingo offers a sophisticated approach to a lack of sophistication and songs of the week from the 80s that say everything about this moment.
