Dr. Mukherjee's thread on why vaccine scarcity is a construct, not an inevitability. Best time to waive patents and dramatically increase global vaccine production was ten months ago. Second best time is today. twitter.com/JoiaMukherjee/…

"I just want to learn." School-age refugees have been forced to give up so much already, they shouldn't have to give up their right to an education. Read UNHCR High Profile Supporter @johngreen's op-ed on #RefugeeEducation. bit.ly/2YBMlqY

Like, people who hate on stuff think it is countercultural or sophisticated or whatever to criticize popular bands, but actually it is the most culturally ordinary thing to do. Anyway, I like that band you think sold out.
The way every show/book/movie that becomes hugely popular later becomes hated (and then still later has a 3rd act where we all agree that actually the once-popular-now-hated thing is not so bad after all) is such a weirdly consistent phenomenon.
Hi. Hello. The last 35 seconds of this video are my current situation. youtu.be/WMt7wAkMieI
Young refugees are not a 'lost generation.’ We know where they are and what they need: schools, teachers, books, equipment and technology, and care. Thank you @johngreen for highlighting this issue. We agree - everyone has a right to an education. independent.co.uk/voices/afghani…

Dr. Lesesne was a hugely important advocate for books, readers, and teachers. One of the best-read, kindest, and most fascinating people I've ever met. Her work will live on through her family, her students, and the books she championed. She touched so, so many lives. twitter.com/TXLA/status/14…
Crash Course Outbreak Science IS HERE! Starring the brilliant @PardisSabeti. Oh gosh I am so excited. Let's understand infectious disease better--and why humans respond to it in the ways we do. youtube.com/watch?v=QnVjv-…
Here's a video about Margarete Steiff, the remarkable woman who (sorta) invented the stuffed animal. youtube.com/watch?v=r3SR-f…
"Oh, the light was on." Anyway, just to ruin the joke by explaining it, we are all moths. We are flying this way and that toward whatever light we see. A lot of the time, especially when I'm In The Feed, I feel like I'm making choices. But really I'm just a moth flying to light.
...and I see the empty shell of a moth, the soulless hunk of a moth that was but shall never be again." And the podiatrist says, "Those are serious problems, moth, but it seems you need to see a psychiatrist. I'm a podiatrist. What brought you HERE today?" And the moth says...
My favorite joke is about a moth that walks into a podiatrist's office. The podiatrist says, "What seems to be the problem, moth?" And the moth says, "Ahh, doctor, if only I had just one problem. My wife has left me. My children don't love me anymore. I look in the mirror...

In March of 1965, Alexei Leonov made this drawing moments after narrowly surviving the first spacewalk. It was the first art created by humans in space. In this final episode of @anthroreviewed, I review this drawing and consider why art matters. npr.org/podcasts/73546…
It's the last Thursday of the month and, in the final episode of The Anthropocene Reviewed (for now?), @johngreen reviews something he's never seen and never will: an Orbital Sunrise. Art by @NadimSilverman. npr.org/podcasts/73546…

I have no opinion on that thing I don't know much about.
For my birthday, I gave myself this video about writing, spacewalks, and the zombie apocalypse of proper adulthood. youtu.be/HiUIbpXjReM

Welcome to the uncanny valley. Come on in. The weather's fine. Nothing to be terrified of whatsoever. youtube.com/watch?v=Burour…

A week from today, the last (for now?) episode of @anthroreviewed will be in your podcast feeds. It's about the first work of art made in space, why we make art, and what we risk to make it. Before that, you can catch up on recent episodes here: npr.org/podcasts/73546…
Tomorrow, AFC Wimbledon will pay their first true home game with fans in THIRTY YEARS. Through those decades, the Wimbledon fan community stuck together, rebuilt their football club, and worked tirelessly to get back home. I am so proud of what they've accomplished. Up the Dons. twitter.com/AFCWimbledon/s…
Really enjoyed this conversation with @saabmagalona about The Anthropocene Reviewed, vulnerability, and writing as myself. Thanks to Fully Booked for hosting us and for all their support for my work over the years. You can watch here: facebook.com/88599481435/vi… twitter.com/_FullyBooked/s…
Three and a half years ago, I was diagnosed with a disease called labyrinthitis. The treatment has helped me to understand that while categories are often useful, they are almost always limited. youtube.com/watch?v=2QJuEq…
Jennifer Senior has written an extraordinarily wrenching exploration of grief, trauma, and the way they ripple through the decades. One of the most moving and brilliantly constructed works of nonfiction I've ever read. theatlantic.com/magazine/archi…

In related news, I no longer have an opinion on the movie Die Hard 5. I haven't seen it, and don't plan to. I formally and permanently rescind my opinions about the movie Die Hard 5. Same with the book Angels and Demons. Haven't read it. No opinion.
I am trying to reduce the number of opinions I have. I am especially trying to reduce the number of opinions I have about books/movies I haven't read/seen but nonetheless have opinions about because I inherited opinions from friends/family/The Discourse.
Project for Awesome donors: @sarahuristgreen and I just released (check your emails / spam) our p4a-only podcast, LIKE LETTERS, where we reread and analyze emails we wrote to each other in 2003 before we started dating. Making it was such a joy; let us know what you think!

When I visited 20 months ago, this was unimaginable. Incredible to see what the hard-working staff at Kissy Psychiatric Hospital have achieved with support from PIH. Learn more about Sierra Leone's only psychiatric hospital here: youtube.com/watch?v=Xk_SfS… twitter.com/pihsierraleone…
I'm so excited to join @vanessamzoltan on August 20th to discuss her extraordinary book Praying with Jane Eyre, which is exactly as brilliant as you'd expect a Vanessa Zoltan book about Jane Eyre to be. eventbrite.com/e/praying-with…
Holy shit am I bad at twitter.
There's plenty of blame to go around of course (I regret every day my past evangelism for twitter and other platforms that prioritize profit over the well-being of users), but somehow the corporations and individuals profiting from misinformation must be held accountable.
This is heartbreaking. It's increasingly likely that it in the next few months, tens of thousands of Americans will die of misinformation. al.com/news/2021/07/i…
