Tl;dr: please share your delightful passions, curiosities and projects in the comments and on social media using the hashtag #BrightThings
My dear multipotentialite friends,
Our writing and editorial team (myself, Claire Nyles, Neil and Kristin) have decided to change up our blog content for the month of April. We had a plan, and we’re scrapping that plan because we want to bring you articles that respond to the current moment and shared crises.
Specifically, we’ve decided that we’re going to bring you articles about “bright things”: art, poetry, lovely wormholes, and interesting topics to explore on the internet. We want to share some of our multipotentialite passions with you and hopefully pique your curiosity by introducing you to some new and delightful things.
I’ll kick it off.
Introducing my favourite podcast, Reply All
Do you guys listen to Reply All? If not, you have a LOT to look forward to! I’ve long felt that Reply All is The Best Podcast that exists, and I will defend that assertion. :)
Reply All is “a show about the internet.” But it’s not really just about the internet. It’s basically about everything. A true multipotentialite podcast if I ever heard one.
Here are two amazing episodes to get you started:
Episode #102: Long Distance
A telephone scammer makes a big mistake by calling Alex: one of the hosts. I won’t say any more because I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it’s riveting.
Episode #158: The Case of the Missing Hit
If you grew up in the 90s and/or are a musician, you will find full delight in this episode. I was completely rapt listening to it. Once I finished it I immediately listened to it again. Expect to leave with an earworm though.
Just a heads up that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (and because the hosts and production team are amazing), they’re doing a bunch of call-in shows from their closets right now. But if you look back through their catalogue, there’s plenty of deep reporting and fascinating stories.
We want to share some of your favourite “bright things” this month, too. Got an interesting, heartwarming, whimsical, beautiful, or hilarious Thing you’ve discovered recently that you would like to share? It can be anything. Have you been learning about something that you’re super excited about? Feeling inspired by a particular book, person, theory, story, etc.?
There are two ways you can share:
- In the comments section below, tell me about something that might help lift up your fellow multipotentialites or at least give them something new and interesting to dig into.
- Share the love with the wider world. After posting your comment here, feel free to share your bright thing on social media using the hashtag #BrightThings
Let’s get this going!
Love you guys and thinking of you a lot right now.
