Does reality show '60 Days In' offer a helpful look on prison life?
q's pop culture panel weighs in on the worthy, contentious, and mind-boggling stories from the week in arts and entertainment. Opinionated and irreverent, our panel takes pop culture seriously (but not too seriously).
Today, journalist Rachel Giese, filmmaker Charles Officer, and critic Norm Wilner join Shad to discuss:
- What does A&E's new, prison-set reality show 60 Days In say about life in American jails? Does it contribute to, or distract from, a very complex issue?
- With Sarah Silverman goose-stepping onto Conan last week to mock Trump, have we reached the point where it's okay to play Hitler for laughs?
- Plus, Napster co-founder Sean Parker wants to revolutionize the film industry with his new streaming site, Screening Room, which delivers first-run movies to your home the same day they hit theater. How will this change our movie-viewing experience?
