Unprepared for What Has Already Happened

«We’re not yet ready for what’s already happened» is the title of an excellent essay that I’m reminded of more often than I’d like (and it’s one of less than a handful links that I’ve shared more than once in the history of the Weekly Filet). This latest episode from This American Life takes it from the societal to the personal, and tells the stories of people trying to make sense of a sudden change that has already happened.

From Weekly Filet #482, in March 2024.
