Each week, two of the New York Times’s finest cultural commentators, Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham, distil the latest in TV, film, celebrity and the internet into their funny and incisive podcast Still Processing. Praised as “sharp and intellectual, goofy and raw”, the series was named in The Atlantic’s top podcasts of 2017. See them on stage for a special Festival edition of the podcast.
