Every week, pop culture contributor Anne T. Donahue stops by q to share two things she loves and one thing that she could live without. Today, she discusses a viral short story titled "Cat Person" from The New Yorker, which is one of the magazine's most-read pieces of 2017. She'll also talk about the movie Dunkirk and why it deserves its three Golden Globe nominations. And in light of a recent development in the case of Making A Murderer's Brendan Dassey, she'll explain why she feels we the audience have some accountability and responsibility when watching true crime shows.
