  • Next: We called up White House press secretary Jen Psaki to talk about President Biden’s priorities for his second year in office.

  • Finally: Sundance Film Festival starts this week — and this year, you don’t have to go in person to watch some of indie cinema’s hottest new offerings. We’ll ask the festival’s director why making Sundance accessible is so important to the world of movie-making.
