Laying here listening to my wife’s alarm go off, I’m struck by a significant societal shift which took place during my lifetime: the snooze bar.
The Story Collider podcast has become a deeply integrated into my psyche, and my life. I stumbled upon the series via Radiolab. On my commute today, I listened to Sara Peters and Peter Aguero’s story about Sara’s epilepsy. This was very well done: by the end I felt connected to them.
