The Nose On Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, Clemency Counselor Kim Kardashian, And 'In The Dark'

Jun 8, 2018

Kim Kardashian rose to fame as a friend of Paris Hilton. She has a sex tape. She's been the subject of any number of reality TV shows. Kardashian is, for many people, the very definition of "famous for being famous."

The Nose's charter includes a provision specifically requiring that we cover all things Kim Kardashian. But then, this week, we learned that she has the power to will presidential commutations into being. That's actually almost too much substance for The Nose to parse. Almost. But not quite.

Also: The second season of APM Reports's In the Dark may be the best podcast of the year." The Nose weighs in. And: Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade died this week.
