But no worries, you always have the option of listening in — because Duke has been cast in the upcoming podcast series Batman Unburied as the caped crusader himself.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) speaks during an event to introduce the Raise The Wage Act in the Rayburn Room at the U.S. Capitol January 16, 2019 in Washington, DC. Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images The federal minimum wage was last raised on July 24, 2009 - 12 years ago. As legislators squabble over infrastructure, the minimum wage is still nowhere to be found. Democrats do still want to raise it, but the party is split on how and when to do it - and how much.

Everything could have been so different

Jorge Borges' story, The Library of Babel, asks us to imagine all the books that could be written using a random shuffling of 25 characters.Daniel Dennett argues that, in some ways, the genetic makeup of all life is similar but with only four characters.The history of the universe is only one possible way our story could have gone. Much of our reality is simply arbitrary. Imagine all the lives you didn't live. A life where you never met your partner. Where you never had a brother or sister. Wh...

It took Chris Stuck 20 years to get published. Now he’s not holding back.

Chris Stuck’s debut short story collection, “Give My Love to the Savages” was a long time coming — two decades after getting his MFA in creative writing. Now that Stuck has finally made it at age 45, he is not holding back. The book’s first story tracks the life of a biracial man like Stuck from the first time he heard the N-word – in kindergarten – through decades of American racism that is sometimes casual, sometimes pointed, but always personal. Stuck follows that poignant and personal t...

Every ‘Space Jam’ Cameo We Spied, From ‘Game of Thrones’ to ‘Harry Potter’

Harry Potter New York is Debuting Two Magical Virtual Reality Experiences — And We Got to Try Them

It’s hard to imagine wandering through the cavernous halls of Hogwarts in the tiny, cramped block where the Harry Potter New York store resides. There is a line around the block to get into the recently opened Wizarding World flagship store, and even more people inside, almost shoulder-to-shoulder as they browse the chocolate-covered frogs or pick out custom-made wands. But there it is, in the corner: a doorway to another world. Or, if we’re sticking by Harry Potter metaphors, a red brick wall ...

‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Review Round-Up: Not So Much a Movie as a Two-Hour Ad for WB’s Content Library

The first reviews for Space Jam: A New Legacy have arrived (we’ll be publishing our own later this week), and unsurprisingly, they are not kind. The first movie worked like gangbusters for children in 1996, and that generation developed a nostalgic fondness for the original while adults rolled their eyes at its soulless, cash-grab nature. (It was based on a commercial, after all.) Decades later, it should not take anyone aback that critics are not thrilled that the sequel takes the plot even fu...
