Does birth control matter to you? Have a socially progressive pet issue? Chances are it’s covered in this weeks Up With Chris Hayes.
Most of my regular readers know I watch every weekend (DVR and online baby! I like to get my beauty-sleep!) and I’m never dissapointed by the
dissection discussion. It mimics the feel of coffee with friends after college classes. When all the nerds my friends and I would gather to add to our professors latest insight, or have a running commentary on the economic impact of default student loans over cheap beer at Becky’s.
Long story short, I dig it. What can I say? I’m a fan.
I’ve read a few books based on show guests, and I haven’t been dissapointed yet.
Baratunde Thurston’s How to Be Black was drop dead hilarious. I listened to it through my audible account while insomnia/packing and guffawed rather loudly a number of times. I was able to grin while packing (no easy feat) and learn a few things along the way, and according to How to be Black I’m well on my way to cafe au lait. (Happy February, lol, Wink Wink @baratunde )
Next on my list is Going Solo by one of Saturday’s guests, Eric Kinenberg. He sold me when he commented on our culture’s conflation of “Living alone, being alone, and being lonely” .
Huzzah sir, you’re right on point!

–> CAN.NOT.WAIT. For Melissa Harris-Perry’s show next week. She nailed her analysis of marriage, religious controls, and women’s control of their fertility! She’s such a smarty pants!
