Andor, Paterson, and the Twitter question

Getting by and beyond, plus social media state of the union

22:46 In Paterson, streaming on Amazon Prime Video, characters and viewers alike find art and beauty in everyday circumstances.

35:53 Plus, culture notes about what comes after Twitter (if anything).
