We discuss I Care a Lot, a polarizing and deeply cynical(?) film, and It's a Sin, a limited series that's as tender as it is devastating.

04:42 I Care a Lot, streaming on Netflix, is ostensibly about a toxic white girlboss, but the extent to which the film is in on the joke is kinda hard to parse.

19:47 It's a Sin, out on HBO Max, is about coming of age in 1980s London, amid the AIDS crisis.

32:06 Plus, culture notes about the ways in which Tumblr has resurfaced in internet culture lately, including in a meme and in a Your Fave Is Problematic reveal.
