This week, President Biden signed a law that could ban TikTok nationwide unless its Chinese parent company sells the media platform within a year. Brittany is joined by NPR’s Deirdre Walsh and Bobby Allyn to discuss the backdrop of this decision and its implications.

Writer Zoe Hu chats with Brittany about her article on the “fantasy” of the tradwife and what this influx in content says about how women feel about work and the modern world.
