Listen to Slate’s The Gist:
On The Gist, Kate Smith’s rendition of “God Bless America.”
In the interview, comedian and filmmaker Lake Bell is here to discuss her new tv series Bless This Mess. About a newlywed couple who move from New York City to Nebraska, it’s a play on the fish-out-of-water trope but packed with more jokes than you know what to do with. Bless This Mess airs on Tuesdays at 9:30pm on ABC.
In the Spiel, the questions at the town halls weren’t all that great.
