In the new series, comedian Tom Papa takes his passion for baked goods to the next level and goes on a mission to find the country’s best breads and pastries. In the premiere episode, Tom heads to New York City and meets up with Jim Gaffigan to make the ultimate New York mashup: a glazed doughnut covered in everything bagel toppings!!!


3. Parson James

Singer and songwriter Parson James likes to call his music “conflicted pop gospel,” and one listen to his debut single “Temple” and the description feels entirely appropriate. James’ songs marry the South Carolina-born, Brooklyn-based artist’s soulful, church-honed voice with shimmering pop production by Swedish producer Elof Loelv (Rihanna, Mikky Ekko), while his lyrics address the duality of human nature.
