This week’s Nose needs food to live, so it begins to devour its host from within.

The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic TV series adapted for HBO from the classic PlayStation game. It stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey.

And: Triangle of Sadness is a black comedy written and directed by Ruben Östlund. It’s his English-language feature film debut, and it won the Palme d’Or at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. It’s nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Östlund and Best Motion Picture of the Year.

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


  • Raquel Benedict: The most dangerous woman in speculative fiction and the host of the Rite Gud podcast
  • Rebecca Castellani: Co-founder of Quiet Corner Communications and a freelance writer
  • Shawn Murray: A stand-up comedian, writer, and the host of the Nobody Asked Shawn podcast
