    On the Existential Dread of the Collapse of HBO Max

    It’s been several months now since we started getting news of the fallout of the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery, and its effects on HBO Max, which had (stunningly) begun to establish itself as something of the preeminent streaming service, to rival the traditional prestige of HBO the cable channel.

    The Surprising Quality of Canadian Comedy: A Primer for Americans
