Must Watch: Last Week Tonight

John Oliver‘s show, Last Week Tonight, became a must-watch as soon as the first episode aired and it’s only gotten better since. John Oliver is British and somehow manages to be able to use the word “we” when hilariously ripping into America without irritating me. He feels like part of the team & I’m happy to have him on ours. His show confronts important topics in a way that’s fun to watch and I really, really appreciate it.

Last Sunday’s piece on maternity leave is great. (Watch the video!)

If you don’t have HBO, subscribe to their YouTube channel and you’ll get a bunch of content for free that way. (I don’t see the whole segment for the Supreme Court Justice dogs on there though and that’s worth tracking down if you haven’t seen it yet. Total favorite forever.)
