Episode 17 (Not Happening)

Episode 16 (I Don't Have The Answer)

EIf you follow me on social media you might have noticed I haven’t really said or reposted anything about the post recent school shooting. I don’t… I’m not sure what to say. It’s not even the most recent mass shooting any more. So far in 2018 there have been 102 mass shootings in the United States as of this recording on May 20th 2018 if the definition is a single incident where 4+ people are injured or killed by a shooter. If the definition is that the shooter has to kill 3+ there have been 13. I don’t really feel like splitting hairs on the definition. I’m currently living in Baltimore where so far this year 106 people have been murdered 94 of those people were shot. I also lived in London and so far in 2018 there have been 63 homicides only 9 of which involved a shooting. The UK’s gun laws are pretty stringent and assume that you don’t need one putting the onus of proof on the party attempting to get a license—very much the opposite of the US just like our justice system...

EEpisode 10 (Where your Mouth Is: Call You Girlfriend Rec) I like words to a degree other people find strange (KonMari is totally on my side in this; AKA, I am not a hoarder) and so I like people who follow up their positive use of words with actions such as the team at Call Your Girlfriend and I cannot recommend them enough.

Episode 9 (Walk like a New Yorker)

EPeople in cities walk because they have places to go and it is a good way to get there. Walk with purpose, a plan, and don’t wait for the little walking stick figure to give you permission. See show notes on urbanteaspoon.com for an image of a typical path when doing so.
