  60. Again i didnt read either book but I did read a lot of articles by the author-- Jo Scott-Coe “In MASS, I was trying to understand a story that had been told over and over again, reinforcing silences and narrative patterns that I found deeply unsatisfying, if not disturbing."

  61. I really adored this. This first episode took me a lot longer than I originally thought for many reasons but by and large due to emotionally triggering findings like the ones Scott-Coe mentions
