Stephen Bruner, the bassist and producer known as Thundercat, has spent the past few years making an impact in the music industry. In 2015, his production and solos were all over Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly,” which is widely seen as the greatest rap album of all time.

As we’re in the middle of a challenging time, podcasts are a great way to escape your own mind and listen in on a discussion that sparks your interest and curiosity.

(04/03/20 4:00am)

As we enter day "???" of quarantine, it might be fair to say that we’ve all come down with a serious case of cabin fever.

Students weigh in: How coronavirus is exposing problems in US

Stuck at home, in the midst of a global pandemic, I’ve found the time to rewatch movies and TV shows from all the way back in middle school. One movie was "Catching Fire," part two of The Hunger Games series, and there’s a certain scene where one character, Beetee, turns to Katniss and says, “There’s always a flaw in the system."
