Things I Liked In 2018



There was so much going on in 2018 that I leaned on journalism, podcasts, and art more than usual to challenge, clarify, and enrich my understanding (and for comic relief too). I listed the most memorable of those things below, and I’d love to hear about your favorite things to read, listen to, and watch this year in the comments or on Twitter.
