heard this as a substitute episode in another podcast, it’s odd and really really excellent: “S.E.I.N.F.E.L.D.” on Imaginary Advice. link to Soundcloud (bleh) here or search for it with your podcast app (which should be Overcast btw). 🎧

finished reading: The Song of Achilles, by Madeline Miller. I really enjoyed this modern telling of The Iliad story, which I knew broadly but have never read. This is so well written, evocative, with superb characterization. highly recommended. 📚

@manton you probably saw this but in case you didn’t, thought you might find the arguments interesting: The Case Against Retweets, from The Atlantic

…though on the other hand, I typically drink a lot more #BEL beer, by style if not actual imports, than #ENG beer. so: back to just hoping for good games 😊

I even like #CRO; also think it doesn’t really matter who #FRA get to beat on Sunday, but: still pretty bummed that #ENG aren’t going to be in the final. hope I’ll at least be able to celebrate a third-place win with my other English #saturdaybeer 😌

fascinating example of implicit bias in reporting on the #WorldCup teams from Africa:

“If you take away the words “pace” and “power” from writers and commentators, they would be utterly lost trying to describe black players.”

trying to unplug completely when I’m watching #WorldCup games each day, but the heavy rotation of Slack ads during halftimes are stressing me out. OMG LEAVE ME ALONE FOR A TWO MINUTES SLACK
