My new video essay is live on YouTube! This is an important one to me; in many ways, it’s the culmination of my thoughts over the last year about unionism and what it can accomplish, informed by my participation in the unbelievably successful WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Hope you enjoy it!

I’m stunned and grateful to have been selected for Time Magazine’s 100 NEXT list for 2023 alongside so many incredible leaders and artists (including Ice Spice!! Ice Spice!!) Thank you to whoever the hell made this happen, and to Mike Schur for writing such kind words.

Adam Pickets Everything
August 10, 2023

I’m flattered by this wonderful profile by Alex Press in Jacobin of our work during the writers’ strike.

I was also quoted extensively in this terrific piece by Brian Merchant in the LA Times, one of my favorite breakdowns of the causes of the strike.

The public support for the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes has been overwhelming, and we’re so grateful for it. As always, if you want to show your support, consider donating to the Entertainment Community Fund.
