“How is a raven like a writing desk?” The Mad Hatter asked Alice. While the answer always perplexed me–“The higher you go, the less there are,” seriously??–it’s the kind of SAT question equivocation game that I play in my head when I think of podcasts and web series. (They are basically a place for people to interview each other, right?) Or a Volvo and Twitter, which is what Tina Fey conflates in this latest episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, driving around Harlem looking for product placement.

What is going on here? Who knows. Tina Fey has some food issues and only does 40 minutes of work in an office. It sounds lovely.

Wouldn’t it be glorious to be as wealthy and beloved as these two TV stars/writers? They are lions on the veldt: They can afford to spend all day lazily swishing their tales and drinking lattes while talking about red volvos or whatever. The top of the comedian food chain, they can afford to spend an hour stalking their Product Placement van.

We envy them and their luxurious lifestyle branding.

The race to chair the Democratic National Committee (DNC) features front-runners Tom Perez, a Hispanic-American and former secretary of labor under Barack Obama who is the establishment pick, and Keith Ellison, a black Muslim congressman from the party's progressive wing who has left open the prospect of pushing to impeach Trump. / AFP / Mandel NGAN AND Brendan SMIALOWSKI        (Photo credit should read MANDEL NGAN,BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images)
