Jost and Che are the co-head writers and 'Weekend Update' anchors for 'Saturday Night Live.' They talk about doing the show in the Trump era, why they hate Twitter, and hosting the Emmys Monday, Sept. 17. When Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico in September 2017, chef José Andrés and his team sprung into action. "After a hurricane, you see a lot of chaos, and people go hungry and people go thirsty. But what [chefs] are very good at is understanding the problem and adapting," Andrés says. "And so a problem becomes an opportunity." His new memoir is 'We Fed an Island.'
