This came after one of its main subjects, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), sought to block the project’s release and threatened legal action against its creators.… Read the rest

Five months into self-isolating alone in a one bedroom apartment, I’ve accepted that my expectations of how all this was going to go were unrealistic.

So while it’s always fun to settle down with a sappy rom-com or gritty drama,… Read the rest
