PSA: unless a city isn’t well known, or shares a name with others, no need to specify the state. i.e., just “Dallas”, not “Dallas, TEXAS” 👍

Podcast Rec: “Still Processing”

I gave a listen to a few episodes of the Still Processing podcast, and really enjoyed them. The hosts have a great rapport, as well as points of view I don’t always hear that often. I’ll let the blurb from the Guardian article where I learned of it make the pitch:

This weekly confab between Pulitzer-winning critic Wesley Morris and his friend and fellow New York Times writer Jenna Wortham is not, strictly speaking, all about politics. So what are they still processing? Being black in America, for starters. Also: queer life, anything inspiring/troublesome in pop culture, Beyoncé v Adele and more. Times colleagues make frequent appearances, and the duo also take the occasional field trip. (If ever there was the correct use of the word “poignant”, it would be to describe their tour of the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture – or the Blacksonian, as they dubbed it.)

That “Blacksonian” episode (it’s from Oct. 6, 2016, if you’re searching by date in a podcast app) was a good one, as was the Feb. 2 episode, “You Only Leave Home When Home Won’t Let You Stay”. But they’re not all big, heavy themes; the latest episode is an Oscars preview. It’s good stuff, check it out.

P.S. Pod Save America, also listed in that Guardian piece (“four former Obama aides… usher in the [Trump] era”) is another good one.
