  • What does it mean to be a 'diva' today?

    After several former dancers for the artist Lizzo sued her for sexual harassment, assault, and other offenses, we talk with the author of a new book looking at Lizzo and other female pop icons. We discuss how we can think about reconciling their complex and sometimes contradictory success, image, messaging, and management style.

  • Why the FCC is looking to bring back net neutrality rules

    The Trump administration removed net neutrality rules, but the FCC under President Biden is looking to bring them back. An internet and communications law expert joins us to discuss what has changed since the net neutrality ended and what would happen if it’s reimplemented.
