Join Rachel Sennott’s

Written by Sennott, who, not surprisingly, landed on this year’s Time Out New York “Comedians to Watch” list, Baby Cult laments the travails of new motherhood in a totally unique way, because none of the women in the short are playing mothers.

I test the reigns down in Africa: A Crusader Kings 3 diary

I don’t believe you could play as an African ruler and come away with an understanding of what it was like there a thousand years ago. I also don’t think that people should be grateful for any representation at all even if it’s poor. But I think Crusader Kings 3 does a good job of […]
