The TV Roundtable Podcast Episode 2: Holding the Bone As the Meat Falls Off

It’s the second week of The TV Roundtable‘s glorious return to the airwaves, and an episode dedicated to discussing two shows – Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and NBC’s Great News – that spirals into a wide-ranging discussion of comedy series in the 21st century. What begins as an examination of the Tina Fey aesthetic, transforms into a celebration of low-scale comedy, a longing for the return of the workplace sitcom, and a deep dive into the morals and emotional goals of great comedy series. Enjoy!

(note: this episode was recorded before game 4 of the NBA finals and during the UK general election… enjoy our horrific amateur prognostications on both as a special treat!)
