how this works, new episode, nova stanley, tue, tuesday
It's Tuesday and today we have Nova Stanley on the show. He's a 17 year old from Brooklyn studying and working to be an illustrator. Among other things, we talk about what remote school looks like at his fine arts high school and being trans masculine in today's world. And this week, we don't just have the official show art but Nova also drew something for his own channels. Such fun, thank you!

my brother my brother and me, other podcast, the mcelroy brothers, the mcelroy family
One of the things that Nova Stanley recommends in our conversation tomorrow is the McElroy Family's My Brother, My Brother and Me. Listen to their newest episode of their advicecast, Blood is Thicker than the Bun, it's hilarious with the three actual brothers (we think).

jewish helping hands, rabbi joel e. soffin, stephanie krivitzky
Jewish Helping Hands is a non-profit started by Rabbi Joel E. Soffin, Stephanie Krivitzky’s childhood rabbi, who in her words “is not only the kindest man on the planet, but also a multi-tasking role model of mine. He has dedicated his ‘retired’ life to bringing high impact to communities around the world using small change.” She gave us the example that for only $400 we were able to get an entire Cambodian village connected to the Internet for a whole year.
Literal pocket change will make a big difference. https://jewishhelpinghands.org

brain pickings, i have a dream, maria popova, martin luther king jr day, nancy duarte, speech
Ahead of tomorrow's episode with Stephanie Krivitzky and given that today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States, we want to highlight Nancy Duarte's analysis of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Found via Maria Popova's Brain Pickings, it's a great way to ground your day and think a little differently about a speech that you might think you know very well.
Here's the original article on Brain Pickings: https://www.brainpickings.org/2013/08/28/nancy-duarte-mlk-speech/

Ahead of tomorrow's episode with Nicolai Lipscomb, we wanted to highlight one of our favorite podcasts in Home Cooking with Samin Nosrat (author of "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat") and Hrishikesh Hirway (Song Exploder) – a series focused on cooking at home. The episode with Rachel Khong gets into all sorts of topics, including how to use a plethora of jalapeños, quality olive oils, and how to cook rice without a rice cooker.

covid-19, mask, novel coronavirus
On Fridays, we like to signal boost something from our week’s guest. And when we asked Selena Rosanbalm about what she’d like to share, she wanted to advise our listeners to wear a mask. This is especially salient as yesterday more than 4,100 deaths and more than 280,000 new coronavirus cases were reported, both records.
Please be safe everyone.

alison gopnik, krista tippett, on being, other podcast
Happy Monday, tomorrow we're airing a conversation with Selena Rosanbalm about what it's like to be working as an independent musician having released an album in 2020. But today, we're listening to a conversation that Krista Tippett had with Alison Gopnik when her book, "The Gardener and the Carpenter", came out Jan last year.
You can listen to the interview here: https://onbeing.org/programs/alison-gopnik-the-evolutionary-power-of-children-and-teenagers/. We would highly recommend the unedited version, runs a bit longer but we find these editions to be more staisfying.
