The Nose Needs A Wet Paper Towel: ‘Black Widow’ And ‘I Think You Should Leave’

Black Widow
Marvel Studios
Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh in ‘Black Widow.’

Black Widow is the 24th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is the ninth, and final, one to feature Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff, and it’s the first film in Phase Four of the M.C.U. I don’t know what a lot of that stuff means, but Black Widow has already set a number of pandemic box office records. It has grossed more than $200 million worldwide so far.

And: I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson is Robinson’s Netflix sketch comedy series. Its six second season episodes debuted on July 6. The episodes are all less than 20 minutes long (!).

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:

GUESTS:

  • Raquel Benedict - Claims to be the most dangerous woman in speculative fiction, and she’s the host of the Rite Gud podcast
  • Tom Breen - Managing editor of The New Haven Independent, and he hosted Deep Focus on WNHH radio
