On the Dial

Two Dollar Radio Sippy Cup on Lake Erie

Brett: This week I read Sarah Gerard's BFF (Guillotine). It reads like a prose poem. It's beautiful and intimate, heartbreaking and reflective. Gerard highlights the intricate realities of growing up and growing apart. The book is not plot driven and is very short, which makes it perfect to pick up anytime if you have a few moments—it's pocket sized, too!

One of my favorite artists, Mitski, is putting out a new album next week titled Puberty 2 (Dead Oceans). NPR is streaming the entire album leading up to the official release. I will be listening as soon as I get some time. I absolutely loved her last album, Bury Me At Makeout Creek, so my hopes are high!

Eric: This week we were off the grid, camping on an island on Lake Erie. I did a lot of hiking, played some pick-up soccer, and listened to the wind at night and the waves along the shoreline beside our campsite.
