It’s another heavy week but thank dog we have each other to debrief with. Myf and Zan have watched the Leaving Neverland documentary, and unpack the way the story was told and the stories we told ourselves. In the wake of the latest allegations, is it possible to cancel a cultural giant? Is it right? And what does it mean for the conversations that are silenced, with it? On a (blessedly) lighter note, an archive of websites from the dawn of the world wide web has us reminiscing about the golden age of fonts, and a college admissions scandal in the States sadly confirms everything we already knew.
