Yes, hello! I was on The Dewy Dudes beauty podcast this week - you can listen below and on any of your favorite podcast platforms. They’re very sweet and I absolutely ramble, please enjoy. It’s embedded below:

My Book Club, on Bookshop.org - which is basically just a roundup of all the books I mention in this newsletter.
On Beauty and Being Just, Elaine Scarry
“Fear might get people in the door the first hours, but you’re going to lose them in the twelfth.” - organizer and educator Mariame Kaba [LOL i completely got this quote wrong in the podcast so I am fact checking myself here]
GLITS and Beauty2theStreetz, two organizations to donate to
Also, here are some of the news pieces I’ve been thinking about this week:
Darian interviewed Paris McKenzie, the 16 year old beauty supply store owner in Flatbush. I was hoping someone would when Paris’ tweet went viral and I am glad it’s my friend.
This New York Times profile on Bad Bunny is truly spectacular as both an expansive profile piece that betters the genre and as a work on language and colonialism. She really did that.
Professor Simone Browne graced us with a new piece on countersurveillance and abolition! I deeply love and respect her work and was so happy to see her in this new project from Colin Kaepernick/Medium. I/we owe so much to her thinking.
This is an older piece but still wild: A Spa Where Patients Bathe in Radioactive Water, BBC. Would pair nicely with a viewing of the movie A Cure for Wellness.
Anyway - hope you enjoy the podcast and spend some time in the sun today. Much love,
