    The COP26 summit held in Glasgow made important progress in a number of areas — but was it enough?

    The world still remains off track to keep 1.5 degrees alive, but the progress made over the last year, and at the summit, offered bright spots and a strong foundation to build upon. This progress also demonstrates that the Paris Agreement mechanisms in place are working, albeit imperfectly and not yet at the required pace.

      Sympathy Pains

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
