    On today's episode:

    1. There is a lot of buzz around season two of the Apple TV+ show “Dickinson.” Today BuzzFeed TV Editor Nora Dominick joins us to talk about the show’s amazing writing, whether or not she thinks Hailee Steinfeld could be a serious awards season contender, and how the show is exploring a side of Emily Dickinson we weren’t taught in school.

    “One of the biggest elements of the show is that we’re reclaiming Emily Dickinson as a queer person! Because as far as we can tell, she was a queer person.”

    Listen to hear what other historical figures Nora would like to see brought to TV screens.

    2. Elizabeth Chambers has a response to the Armie Hammer fiasco, and it involves Timothee Chalamet.

    3. Zendaya is reminding people that she is, in fact, an adult.
