The Nose Bids Adieu to "The Nightly Show," Gawker, and NPR's Comments Sections

Aug 19, 2016

Comedy Central's "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore" came to its hasty conclusion last night, still more than two months before the election. Gawker will shut down next week. And as of next Tuesday, NPR's website will no longer have comments sections.

Brian Williams, on the other hand, is getting a new show on MSNBC. And Jonah Lehrer's got a new book out.

This hour: The Nose looks at the ends of some things and the beginnings of other things. Plus: a conversation about how there are just so many things now that it's pretty much just impossible to keep up with all of the things.

GUESTS:

  • Lucy Gellman - Reporter for the New Haven Independent and station manager at WNHH radio
  • Brian Slattery - Arts editor for the New Haven Independent and a producer at WNHH radio
  • Pedro Soto - Chief operating officer at Space-Craft Manufacturing in New Haven
