The Thrill: 'Girls', a sociology of the teen, and Angelina Jolie

This week, we discuss buzzy shows, One Direction's changes, and celebrity health endorsements


Every Friday, Maclean’s arts writers Adrian Lee, Emma Teitel and Julia De Laurentiis Johnson gather to discuss and break down the hottest topics in TV, film, books and music. Expect discussion, analysis and interviews, all replicating the feeling of having a coffee and talking pop with your friends!

On this week’s podcast, we discuss Girls, which just wrapped up its fourth season on HBO, and whether or not buzzy TV shows can recapture their moment; we talk about what the departure of Zayn Malik from One Direction means, and the history of the teen as a pop-culture group; and we explore the value of celebrity health endorsements in the wake of Angelina Jolie’s op-ed in The New York Times. We’re also joined in studio by guest and Girls expert Colin Horgan!
