I veckans podd: höstens tv, komedi i Trump-tider & Childish Gambino

If you love television as much as we do, the annual TV Upfront bring a cornucopia of new content to look forward to. Once a year, the broadcast networks come together to present their Fall TV lineups, and the 2018 slate has 40+ new shows coming our way.

Host Christina Jeurling Birro speaks with NPR’s TV critic Eric Deggans about the announced shows he is looking forward to, the overall trends, and if the networks are taking risks or playing it safe. He also shares his view on the recent work from Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino and why it resonates with audiences today.

We are also joined by comedian and writer Laurie Kilmartin, who has been known to not shy away from difficult subjects. Whether it’s her own stand up, live-tweeting her father’s death, or writing monologues for Conan O’Brien, Kilmartin tackles them head-on.

In 2014, comedy and tweeting gave Kilmartin an outlet for expressing her emotions when her father died in hospice at home. She has now written a poignant and funny book called Dead People Suck: A Guide for Survivors of the Newly Departed.
