Resumes of friends
I used to listen to a lot of NPR. These were my highlight episodes:
- The Free Food Market (2017): The power of money
- So, Should We Recycle? (2019): The myth of recycling (plastic)
- Waste Land (2020): The provenance of the plastic recycling myth
People often write these off because they either don’t like NPR, or they don’t like things with Money in the name. If that’s you, give it a try.

Reasons she’s wrong:

Why does nobody get your jokes, Hraban?
— Rob Watts
