Lauren Wessell, Managing Editor • October 23, 2020
The headline here is a little misleading so I’ll be honest, this is an intermediate level recipe. You will need to be an avid fan of "The Great British Baking Show" or at least have a second pair of helping hands that are a little more skilled than you!

REVIEW: 'Antebellum' is a means for Hollywood to profit off racial commentary

REVIEW: 'Emily in Paris' is the show we love to hate
Cierra Noffke, Culture Editor • October 17, 2020
The series is a frothy 10-episode ode to millennials and an American ideal of Paris. There is little in the show that holds ties to reality.

Casey McAnarney, Editor-in-Chief • October 12, 2020
“I didn’t think critically about what racist and classist tropes the whole event perpetuated because I had room for disconnection afforded to me by my skin color,” she wrote. She also wrote that “toying with the idea of participating in a festival that celebrates such an era is a perverse privilege.”
