    On today's episode:

    1. The reviews are in for Netflix’s highly anticipated film “Malcolm & Marie,” and they’re mixed--to put it nicely. But, the one thing that is receiving universal praise is Zendaya’s performance.

    Today we’re talking with Sylvia Obell about the ascendance of Zendaya. She interviewed Zendaya for Essence, and on her Netflix podcast “Okay, Now Listen.” So, Sylvia is basically now Zendaya’s b.f.f.

    2. The Super Bowl produced so many memes.

    3. There has been *another* gender reveal party fatality.
