    Issa Rae talks to us about her new Netflix rom-com, The Lovebirds, the IRL experiences that inspired this season of Insecure, and her college production of a Motown rendition of Grease.

    And, it turns out that President Trump’s favorite miracle cure for COVID-19 is actually more likely to kill you than save you. Yikes.

    Plus, Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga have blessed us with the perfect summer bop.

    And the city is quiet...a little too quiet, as the fine folks at the New York Times Upshot reported.
