FOOTNOTES

Smoke is not weather. Let me tell you why I have said this. Weather is something you can do very little to prevent; you can only prepare for it and warn people about it and buy protective gear. Smoke happens when someone decides to light a fire.

I am sick of having to treat smoke as though it is weather.

I am sick of having to bear witness about sexual harassment.

I am sick of being warned, or not warned, about interacting with certain people, as casually (Molly Ringwald’s words, not mine) as talking about the weather.

Read the whole story here, and follow Alexandra on Twitter @petridishes.  

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Charlotte recommends Pocket, which allows you to save articles from your browser or social media so that you can read them later;

  • Emma recommends Duolingo, which will help you broaden your horizons by learning new languages. (She’s finding Portuguese a lot easier than Swahili at the moment.)

THE NEXT EPISODE…

…Will be our top-secret Christmas special, as Emma will be on parental leave from mid-October. Can’t wait till then? Catch up with all 20 TNK episodes here!
