Interesting Reads & Listens
What is currently keeping me up at night? Here are some books, podcasts, general links that keep me busy right now.
1619. A friend recently recommended this podcast for a long road trip. The 1619 project was started as a way to observe the 400th anniversary of the beginning of slavery in the U.S. I had read portions of the 1619 project on the NYTimes but hadn’t listened to the podcast. It is a must-listen! Super interesting and relevant for understanding the way our society in the U.S. has been set-up from the beginning.
The Body Keeps the Score. More and more, I’m trying to understand how experiences of trauma and stress get embedded in the biology of a person. This book has been particularly helpful–albeit a bit heavy.
Acadames Podcast. This podcast manages to both make me laugh and inspire me. It covers all range of topics and is hosted by two fabulous academics. Take a listen, it won’t disappoint!
