hi welcome to another issue of things i send/recommend to my friends, but all together. :-)
for those of you that are new from @kelsaywhat, thanks for joining!! i hope you enjoy clinking on lots of links. (friends that don't know kelsey, you should totally follow her on twitter and subscribe to her newsletter. she's hilarious and is the content queen)
this time: a curated collection of september favorites (i guess these are coming out monthly now)
some notes: my watching, reading, and listening habits definitely lean more (a lot more than most) longform--which you may or may not have noticed if you clicked on any of my past links and got overwhelmed. not all are long, but just be aware!
also, i use @pocket to save my articles and my favorite app, @pocketcasts to listen to my podcasts. i am not sponsored, just SUPER into them. they go well with this newsletter. enjoy! as always, feel free to send me things.
part 4 of terrace house aloha state is out!! but i've been slow to watch it because i don't want to deal with it being over once i do finish my final 7 episodes
(i mostly read and listened to music this past month)
- series: still reading...refinery29's money diaries. read how teachers spend their money.
- a book! i finished matthew desmond's 2017 nonfiction pulitzer prize winner, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. it's a mix of personal stories and quantitative data on evictions and poverty in wilwukee, in connection to larger themes of inequality in america. poverty isn't a well-reported subject but evicted certainly sets new standards for how to report more kindly and with more care for the humans involved. (if anyone wants to see him in san francisco with me, let me know!)
