Coming-of-age comedies navigate tumultuous adulthood

Recently two similar, yet undeniably different series returned for new seasons: HBO’s “Girls” and Comedy Central’s “Broad City.” Both are half-hour comedies centering around women in their twenties exploring what adulthood should look like in New York City.

Actions by The Frequency have opened up conversations regarding segregation in Madison’s hip-hop scene.
