The BINGE—July 2020

By Elizabeth Gracen & Derek May:


We're into our seventh month of the year now, and while our typical summer activities have been revised, diminished, or outright cancelled, we're lucky to be enduring a pandemic in an age where content comes to us at the speed of streaming to keep us entertained and maybe even a little bit sane.
