Need a break? Listen to some #poetry. Go to our Instagram story to hear the amazing Terrance Hayes recite his poem, "American Sonnet for My Past and Future Assassin." (📸: @erinbrethauer)

Our radio friend @anayansi_dc produced a captivating piece about one of the darkest episodes in Mexican history. It tackles a peaceful protest turned deadly in 1968. The government claims 4 casualties, but eyewitnesses say hundreds of dead bodies were trucked away. Listen to the story through the link in our bio.

In the mood for something sweet and delightful? #Okja, co-written by Pop-Up pal @jonronson, is now streaming on Netflix.

That time Kumail Nanjiani told a story at our show ☺️ He has a new movie out this weekend called #TheBigSick (co-written by another Pop-Up friend, @EmilyVGordon). We can’t wait to see it!

From our spring issue, repost from @laurentamaki: @yassir_lester was fired from the SAME McDonald's eight times 🍟 @popupmagazine asked me to animate his story and while I can never fully capture his hilarious essence, I can share these lil gifs with y'all!
THIRD FIRING: Yassir didn't respect his manager's rich lineage as 'one of Satan's most powerful earth warriors' 🔥

Inspired by the power of the Somali poets who — through cassette tapes — spread dissent against a regime that was ultimately overthrown, we asked U.S. poets to write and record poems responding to this political moment. From “American Sonnet for my Past and Future Assassin” by Terrence Hayes (now @nytmag's #poetry editor) to “Paul Ryan” by Matthew Zapruder, take a listen through the link in our bio.
