Building a fairer, greener, and more compassionate society is positive sum. That’s Jen Fries’ vision of where we need to go. The society we live in today is the product of really narrow assumptions about what is possible and whose voices are worth listening to. Jen is challenging those assumptions to build better public transit, lower carbon emissions, and stand up for people who aren’t being heard today. She wants to pass better policies for black and brown communities, sexual assault survivors, trans folks, undocumented residents, and people from all walks of life who just don’t have access to the sort of prosperity our country likes to say it offers. We’ve endorsed her for State Rep in Arlington, Belmont and Cambridge, so if you’re in her district, sign up for a mail-in ballot and vote. The primary is September first. If you want to get in touch with us, you can email email@example.com or search for The Sunrise Movement to find a chapter near you. To learn more about Jen, visit https://www.jenniferfries.com/
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
