The Daily Show Co-Creator Madeleine Smithberg Talks Significance Of Jon Stewart’s Return

The Daily Show co-creator Madeleine Smithberg Talks Significance of Jon Stewart’s Return

As host of “The Daily Show” from 1999 to 2015, Jon Stewart changed comedy — and arguably journalism, too — with sharp, satirical takes on politics and current events. He became an essential part of the nation’s conversation. Now let’s see if he can turn back time. Stewart is back in the host chair for a limited time, that’ll be every Monday up until the 2024 general election. So what’s the kind of prep that’ll be necessary for a host, who although politically involved, hasn’t been doing the grind of a daily program since 2015?

<br> Today on AirTalk, Austin talks to <a href=”https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0810431/”><strong>Madeleine Smithberg</strong></a>,<i>co-creator and original showrunner for “The Daily Show</i>,” to not only contextualize the significance of Stewart being back on but also the work it takes to keep the show sounding consistently informative and entertaining.

Why Some Of The Kennedy’s Are Outraged Over RFK Jr Super Bowl Ad

Why Some Of The Kennedy’s Are Outraged Over RFK Jr Super Bowl Ad

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of U.S. president John F. Kennedy, apologized Sunday night after a super PAC ran a Super Bowl ad for his presidential campaign. Kennedy Jr. is running as an independent. The advertisement drew similarities between him and JFK, even using the same structure of music and candid photos <a href=”https://www.politico.com/news/2024/02/12/rfk-jr-super-bowl-ad-00140922″>as a JFK ad from the 1960s</a>. The American Values Super PAC paid $7 million. Family members <a href=”https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/11/us/politics/rfk-jr-super-bowl-ad.html”>have denounced RFK Jr.’s campaign</a> because of his views on vaccines and some expressed their outrage leading to the apology on the social media site X. There he said, “I’m so sorry if the Super Bowl advertisement caused anyone in my family pain. The ad was created and aired by the American Values Super PAC without any involvement or approval from my campaign. FEC rules prohibit Super PACs from consulting with me or my staff. I love you all. God bless you.” Joining us to discuss the ad and what we should know about his connection to conspiracies is <a href=”https://laist.com/people/antonia-cereijido”><strong>Antonia Cereijido</strong></a>, <i>host of the LAist Studios podcast Imperfect Paradise.&nbsp;</i>

SoCal History: The Black Community Has A Rich And Long History In LA

SoCal History: The Black Community Has A Rich And Long History In LA

Black history in California is widely misunderstood and misrepresented. Whenever you <i>think</i>Black history began in California, it’s likely you need to jump back a couple decades, or even a century for the timeline to be accurate. “They started coming to California before California was part of the United States,” writes historian and curator of the California African American Museum Susan D. Anderson in a recent <a href=”https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/07/us/california-black-history-month.html”>NY Times piece</a>. So how far does Black history date in the Sunshine state? All the way back to the 1700s when <i>pobladores</i><a href=”https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1995-02-13-me-31591-story.html”>trekked up for Mexico</a>. Many of the families were of early African descent with Spanish surnames. The Gold Rush saw a surge of Black people coming to the state in the 1840s and another influx during the Second Great Migration. Joining us today on AirTalk is <a href=”https://newsroom.lmu.edu/expert-profile/marne-campbell/”><strong>Marne Campbell</strong></a>, an associate professor of African American Studies at Loyola Marymount University and author of the book “Making Black Los Angeles: Class, Gender, and Community, 1850-1917.”&nbsp;

Falafel Tacos? Kebab Burritos? Silverlake’s New MidEast Tacos Melds Armenian And Mexican Cuisines

The beauty of Southern California’s sprawling food scene is that no matter where you are, you’re bound to find some excellent fusions of traditional cuisines. One such restaurant is MidEast Tacos, which just opened its very first brick-and-mortar location in Silverlake. For several years, it was a popup at the popular Sunday food festival Smorgasburg in Downtown Los Angeles, where owner and Chef Armen Martirosyan and his business partner Aram Kavoukjian has been melding Armenian barbecue with tacos and burritos to create a unique and original cuisine that combines his Armenian heritage with his L.A. roots. Martirosyan is no stranger to the kitchen — he grew up working at his parents restaurant, Mini Kebab, in Glendale, which is beloved in its neighborhood and has also been featured on the Los Angeles Times list of L.A.’s 101 best restaurants.
