I don’t know who needs to hear this but you can delete those downloaded podcast episodes you’ll never get to, unsubscribe from that podcast you “should” like, and even skip that episode of your favorite podcast that’s about a subject that’ll stress you out!

Looking for an alternative to a David Brooks article...

Someone on a project I'm in wants to cite David Brooks's 2020 piece "The Nuclear Family Was a Mistake" which is honestly... pretty good for Brooks?

But I know that this has been said before and better by POC and I am looking for a good piece on the subject to support the concept of extended family/kinship/chosen family networks vs. focus in nuclear family.

corona and new years eve fireworks blabla in germany 

It is a bit surreal:
healthcare workers in hospitals post selfies showing them exhausted and with marks from wearing PPE for hours and hours in their faces on social media.

meanwhile germans <s>debate</s> whine because they think it's not ok to ban individually fired fireworks and firecrackers on new years eve
