Allen v Farrow | Test Kitchen cooks Gimlet | JWong’s Happy ‘Niu’ Year
BL + BW discuss Allen v. Farrow, a new HBO documentary series reinvestigating claims of child sexual abuse against director Woody Allen, who has continuously denied the accusations since they were raised in 1992, amidst an ugly and highly public breakup with Mia Farrow. The series was made with the cooperation of Dylan Farrow, who at age 7 accused Allen, her adoptive father, of abuse.
We’re recapping new developments on Reply All’s Test Kitchen miniseries because what was meant to be an investigation of systemic racism at Bon Appetit has turned the spotlight on racism at Gimlet, the audio company that makes Reply All, with some pretty seismic fallout
And we’re wishing everyone a happy ‘niu’ year with comedian, ABC Everyday reporter and pun master Jennifer Wong, host of a pan-Asian Lunar New Year comedy show in Sydney.
