This week's pop culture panel — Rachel Giese, Stephen Marche and Briony Smith — gather to discuss the latest headlines in the world of arts and entertainment.

At issue this week: 

  • Go Set A Watchman, the controversial sequel to Harper Lee's classic To Kill A Mockingbird has just been published — more than 50 years after it was written. Should we read it? 
  • Nerdfest Comic Con: Is it a safe space for fans, or a corporate hype machine? 
  • Donald Trump, celebrity candidate: Is the mogul and former reality TV star a new kind of politician?
