On the Dial | Still Processing



Like a responsible citizen, I used to be really good about listening to the news every morning. However, I realized that listening to the news every morning before work was making me super angry and depressed. So I switched to a murder podcast. I'm not sure if that is reflective of my fucked up brain or our fucked up world, but overall its a pretty sad situation. But I'm not going to write about a murder podcast because escapism only lasts for so long. 

Still Processing has been a light in the dark for me. The natural banter between New York Times culture critics, Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham, is incredibly refreshing and enlightening. The pair breaks down everything from society and art, to dating and work. Their discussions are reflective, intentional, and intersectional (!!! so important !!!). 

Here are my top 5 *recent* episodes:

  1. We're Queer - and Apparently So Is Everyone Else 
  2. We Wouldn't Leave Kanye, But Should We?
  3. Asian Americans Talk About Racism, and We Listen
  4. We Need Bad Women
  5. We Can't Burn It All Down (Even Though Sometimes We Want To)

Wow, it was hard to pick 5. They're all fire.
