We discuss the new film Shiva Baby and the series Gentefied, both about (in a way!) power, money, and who has those things.

02:25 Shiva Baby, available in some theaters and on demand, is about a college student/sugar baby stuck in a claustrophobic limbo at a shiva.

22:17 Gentefied, streaming on Netflix, is about three cousins and a grandpa trying to balance their dreams and their community in LA.

37:27 Plus, culture notes about Regé-Jean Page's departure from Bridgerton, and more broadly, about the rise of the romantic male breakout star compared to their female counterparts.
