This is the first episode in a delightfully presented 12-episode series that feels like a long documentary cut into chunks rather than a podcast. Podcasts are typically spoken on the fly. While Hardcore History is rambling at times and sort of stream of consciousness, this is edited to the minimal necessary information on each topic. Most episodes are between 15 and 30 minutes long.

The primary host is white but he brings on a number of black historians and scholars to discuss race from a perspective that I had not learned even in my sociology background. If you have any interest in how race became a concept or why "all lives matter" is offensive, you need to listen to this. If you don't understand institutionalized racism and why so much focus is placed on it as a concept that harmed so many people of color over the past centuries, you need to listen to this.

In the words of one of the presenters, race may be a false concept scientifically but it is a very real concept socially, politically, and structurally. This series will blow away your elementary school version of the history of slavery, racism, and race relations. I haven't even finished Episode 3 yet.

Glad I did a little digging. Turns out the mobile networks are pretty bad in most places (especially South America, Mexico, and Africa) so the international roaming options are nothing but puffery.

Sure they have contracts with partners in those countries but the actual cell service doesn't work. Of course neither Google nor T-mobile actually comes out and tells you that the partner services are basically useless.

Good thing Google also developed offline maps options, perhaps due to their realization that you might need it sometimes. At least T-mobile generally says you get 2G speeds when roaming because that is about all they can offer.

Though this article focuses on breweries in the East Coast, the same phenomenon is leading to a huge increase in availability of cans in the West Coast as well. In San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, all the way up to Monteray and Berkeley breweries are putting out limited can releases and doing quite well for themselves.

I learned quite a lot yesterday at an all day seminar on family law trial techniques. Ready to use those techniques for my clients.

Scotus Blog wrote some informative analysis of the various proposed Supreme Court justices. Pure factual account of their experience and history.

It boggles the mind that people of any time would have no problem building over cities like this, but then that is exactly what happened in many different places.

Should we be spending our time this month obsessing about what we might gain in material possessions, or embracing our fellow humans and sharing what we can with those in need? Nothing hits harder as a message of peace and understanding than the image of this man standing alone on the street blindfolded.
