This week in the magazine, Emily Nussbaum reviews the third season of the sketch-comedy show "Key & Peele." Jelani Cobb writes frequently about race and culture for newyorker.com, and his essay on Dave Chapelle and African-American comedy is collected in his book "The Devil and Dave Chappelle." Here, Sasha Weiss talks with Nussbaum and Cobb about how Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's biracial identities allow them to cross lines other comics might avoid, and how their humor moves past mockery towards empathy. Also on the podcast, Simon Parkin on why we're about to hear a lot more about video game violence.
