Remember how I said I would send the newsletter on Saturday? Well, I am ... technically. It's approaching midnight on the East Coast, but it's still relatively early in the night out West. So, to my East Coast readers, I hope this is a nice companion to your Sunday reading.
This week's selection of reading features some of my favorite things: friends, big thoughts about how we think and learn, our relationship with technology, the growing economic gap and the power of swearing. It appears, swearing may make us stronger. So, it may help to drop the f-bomb in your next spin class.
In the meantime, if you have some fun reading, send it along! Also, check out what my friend Sam Sanders is doing over on NPR One
. He brought on Katie Rogers of The New York Times, who wrote this incredible piece on Judy Woodruff and The PBS NewsHour
, which is very close to my old home at Washington Week over at WETA in Virginia. She tackles a news story about news gracefully and insightfully. This is a beautiful marriage of talent and great story. Brava, Katie.
Sam and Katie are reporters' reporters. You know people where you wake up one morning and you go: "Wait a minute, my friends are famous"?! Yeah, I say that a lot when I wake up in the morning.
Keep crushing it, people -- all of you. I'm a proud and happy fan and honored to be in your inbox.
P.S. You want to hear Sam talk about Fyre Festival. Seriously, you do.
