On Hypernormalization

Merlin, I envy your ability to call hypernormalization something that can happen in countries like Russia then seamlessly switch to how happy you are that there’s gonna be a woman of color as VP.

We have top men working on it

I listen to Reconcilable Differences every episode and it’s a always a joy. The opening music is my cue that I’m about to be relaxed and laugh a bit as these two talk about life and culture and try to relate to one another. One of the best podcasts going.
