““I want to simplify my life,” you said. “I really don’t need all of this stuff. Oatmeal, banana and peanut butter, I can live off that easily.”

“That sounds terrible,” I probably responded, because I was always sarcastic and sometimes your commitment to balance and emptiness scared me because I’ve always been overly grounded in this false reality.”

The most Buddhist food blog I know is also the loveliest.

Two scientists will talk about their science.
Two improv teams will do sets off of those talks.
It is just like Cosmos. Except for the improv part.

The scientists are Paula Croxson and Ben Lillie, two of the smartest, coolest people I know. (Paula also has a kick-ass British accent.) I may have to stay up past my bedtime for this.

“Sometimes it feels like the more violent choice — I don’t know if I want to say “violent,” but certainly more intentional or aggressive — is to keep journalism and memoir separate. Every time a journalist reports a piece, she’s having a really intense experience; every time you have a conversation with another person — whether you’re doing it as a journalist or a friend — all these moments of your own past are rising up to haunt you.”

It’s Always Spilling Over The Edges

I interviewed Leslie Jamison for BuzzFeed Books. We talked about travel, parents, writing, pain, maggots, ultra-marathons, and other sorts of things one expects in an essay collection.

“This was also what dating was for, to see the penis at rest. It rested out of politeness to the naked strangers, so as not to disturb their patented water massage techniques, or maybe it rested out of guilt. I didn’t understand the mechanism of control behind the penis, though I respected it. I didn’t understand the mechanism of control behind Catholicism either, or behind any of the Eastern religions mentioned in the hot springs course packet the guy had given us at the front desk.”

Rebecca Schiff, “It Doesn’t Have to Be a Big Deal”

Hear Rebecca read from this story in episode 3.

Guys, this story is so good. And so good aloud.


How did this even come up? We were in Portland, me and Tanner visiting Allison and Ben, and then I said something about green tea Kit Kats and Ben said he knew where they might have them, and then the next day there was a field trip to the biggest Asian market imaginable, and Tanner and I bought so many different treats - so many of them matcha flavored! - that we needed a whole second carry-on for our flight home. And then tonight, home now, I tried a green tea Kit Kat, and it was everything I dreamed of.
