Introducing Life and Art, a new podcast FT Weekend. Join host Lilah Raptopoulos for two episodes each week.

On Mondays, they talk about life and how to live a good one. On Fridays, Lilah hosts a roundtable that will dive deep into a piece of culture that’s in the air right now.

On this episode, Lilah’s joined by FT columnist Stephen Bush and assistant arts editor Rebecca Watson to talk about the new cringe-drama-comedy show, The Curse. They discuss the show and how prestige TV is changing comedy. Why are we laughing less, and cringing more? And why is comedy so complicated right now?
