Every month I publish a short eNewsletter called GOOD THINGS. It's a thoughtfully curated list of three recommendations. Items might include a film, an album, a podcast, a book, an essay—anything that brings joy or perspective. (Samples from the latest newsletter below.)

Subscribe to GOOD THINGS. You're going to dig it. Promises.



I can't believe I’m sharing another COVID video. But seriously, this one is good. From the folks behind the YouTube channel "It's okay to be smart" comes a helpful reminder of how far we’ve come and what we need to do to move to the next step. Please watch. Please share.


Luking for a good movie? Luca is the tale of a sea monster who wants to see what life is like on land.
