It’s been a non-stop news cycle since last November’s election, and Hyperallergic’s news team has been on it. Join us and listen to the team’s thoughts on the stories we’ve been reporting on.

For this episode, we gather to discuss the stories that we covered this week, including the Bernie memes; the Capitol insurrection; the charred Melania Trump sculpture in Slovenia; the rumors that Trump staffers were taking works home; the Ohio Arts Board member who was forced out after her social media posts were discovered; the damage to an ancient arch in Iraq; the closing of the disastrous Vessel in Manhattan; and the viral sink reviewer who hates the faucets at the Museum of Modern Art.

The music for this episode is Lorenzo Senni’s “Canone Infinito” courtesy of Warp Records.
