FROM Emily Nussbaum
Women and TV Season one of HBO’s True Detective wraps up this Sunday. It stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as two detectives investigating murder on the Louisiana Bayou. Critics love it. Your nihilist friend who you previously thought incapable of love… loves it. But like a lot of shows -- both on HBO and elsewhere -- it’s got something of a woman problem. Emily Nussbaum is television critic for the New Yorker and she joins us now to talk about women on TV.
'Dandelion and Quince,' food and crime, 'All About Eggs' Sarah Lohman talks about the murder and historic recipes that form the backbone of her new book, “Ohio 1910,” and Rachel Khong shares highlights from Lucky Peach’s last cookbook, “All About Eggs.” Michelle Mckenzie tells us how to cook oft-forgotten fruits, veggies and herbs, and Jonathan Gold reviews AR Cucina in Culver City. Plus: raspberries at the market and a special guest DJ set from Alton Brown.
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
