Byte sized #2: Reply All and the Girl Guides, plus bonus Alanis

This week’s Reply All, episode #28, Shipped To Timbuktu, made me cry. Find out how adults running Girl Guides, to loosely quote one of the interviewees, “saved the childhoods” of children living in a concentration camp. Not even kidding.

#ICYMI: It’s Gen X theme week, probably because everything is suddenly turning 20. Soraya Roberts over at Hazlitt looks at the making of Alanis Morissette.

Even though Father’s Day is over, Lindsay Popper’s How to Love Your Father When He’s in Prison for Child Porn on Narratively has stayed with me. (Trigger warning)
