Episode 64: American Vandal

This week, Gavia and Morgan are joined by special guest Mallory Ortberg for a conversation about Netflix's surprise true crime spoof American Vandal. They discuss the show's relationship to true crime, its glorious depiction of dirtbag teens and innovative use of social media, and the relief of watching something that just feels not-terrible.

Mallory is the co-founder of The Toast and the author of Texts from Jane Eyre. Her new book, The Merry Spinster, will be released in March.
