Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.
I like to think of them as my e-links:
Friday’s e-links (9/25)
A combination of intellect and humanity, of the power of the law and of one woman, CNN’s documentary, RBG, was excellent. I watched it several times this week, alone, and with my class. The film conveys her inspirationally monumental legacy.

This podcast interview has me thinking. During an hour and 21 minutes of questions from former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District, Preet Bharara, Harvard philosophy professor Michael Sandel describes his new book. Critical of our meritocracy, the book suggests we take a second look at values that emphasize elite colleges and being smart rather than social justice, the dignity of all work, and the role of luck. He lets us know you cannot always make it, even if you try. I am still deciding where I agree and disagree.

The one podcast that I consistently return to is More or Less: Behind the Statistics. Perhaps because it comes from the always interesting Tim Harford, its quality and quirkiness never disappoint me.

Again The Daily had my favorite e-link. Describing how a small theater group produced a play in the midst of a pandemic, this podcast was about acting and adjusting, inspiration and creativity. I truly enjoyed it.
