On the 2019 Academy Awards. Maren Thom joins us again to see what we can learn from the Oscar nominations.

On #NOBS in the media. So many newspapers are inadequate these days, as they shift to publishing opinion and listicles instead of hard reporting. Why has this happened and how does it relate to the end of history? Amber discusses her forthcoming article on the crisis in the media and we explain why leftists should read the Financial Times.
Plus: Amber rates previous Bunga guests and also explains why it's Bernie, bitch.
