Still Processing: Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham

A culture conversation with Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

The New York Times culture writers’ Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham sit down with Manager – ABC Audio Studios, Kellie Riordan, for an exclusive evening of conversation to discuss their journey with the highly acclaimed podcast Still Processing.

Each week Wesley and Jenna chew over big and small questions of American culture in their addictive podcast Still Processing. Their incredibly wide-ranging discussions roam across TV, movies, sport, history and politics – often joined by special guests like RuPaul and Ta-Nehisi Coates. The pair enjoy a wonderful chemistry and have extremely eclectic tastes, enthusiasms and opinions, making Still Processing one of the most successful podcasts in The New York Times stable.

Step inside their confession booth as Wesley and Jenna bring a live edition of Still Processing to Brisbane Powerhouse on Tuesday 1 May.

“He’s like Oscar Wilde — breathtakingly funny and absolutely serious in the same breath, able to illuminate the deepest and sometimes darkest meanings of a piece of popular culture without losing sight of the fact that it’s all supposed to be fun.” – AO Scott
