We’ve debated and gone back and forth, but I think the verdict is we are going to delay the taping of our #ShowYourWork podcast until after the weekend.  Because the Met Gala is coming, and because Lainey and I are going to be in New York this weekend, and because there is too much good material coming at us and we need to delay our argument about who should win ‘Do I Need To Care About’. Full Story

I guarantee the number one question Lin-Manuel Miranda is asked by people who don’t know is “When is Hamilton going to be a movie?” He always answers “Oh… eventually”, which is polite because it doesn’t say what I would say, which is ‘what, being the most successful Broadway debut ever and breaking all kinds of records isn’t good enough for you?

Before Lainey dreamed about being the dean of celebrity studies at a small liberal arts college somewhere in New England, we would talk about how great it would be just to be perpetual students, deep in studying for learning’s sake, not for a degree and a job, Hermione Granger style. But secretly, I sometimes doubted I would have the…I don’t know… silence tolerance. Full Story
