I'm stoked to see so many friends bail on Twitter and FB! It's great. I'd love to see media entities push back on the power they give FB both institutionally and personally. When editors stop relying on Twitter as a way to find writers, when publishing companies stop using Twitter as a success metric, then maybe I could leave!
I would love to leave FB. I would love to leave Twitter. I can't. Not if I want to (successfully) continue doing my job as a journalist/producer/independent person. If I want Flash Forward to succeed and find listeners, I need FB. If I want editors to remember who I am, I need Twitter. It shouldn't be the responsibility of independents to push publishing/media away from the hell that is Twitter/FB.

I have a ton of projects that are probably going to happen, but aren't happening yet, and I am losing my goddamn mind with impatience and anxiety about them all.
grouch that could hurt me professionally Show more
It seems kinda weird to me that there's a whole conference about supporting women in radio right now being hosted by a station that has a pretty shit history of just that and like, nobody seems to be talking about it?????

Flash Forward is currently being beaten by several podcasts about ghosts and one about fucking Sasquatch hunting. Several people are doing really well with shows that are their side project and hobby. Honestly it feels impossible to win trying to make a super produced show that takes up SO much of my time all by myself what is even the point. Maybe nobody wants this show! If so then maybe I shouldn't waste my time!

There's a comedian I used to live with who is slowly getting more and more popular. Living with her was a TRUE NIGHTMARE, including a lot of her screaming at me out of nowhere and her threatening to sue me when I moved out, and every time I see her stuff RT'd it's ... weird. Not even stressful honestly, it's now just a kind of funny "bad roommate" story now, but it's WEIRD to see her get popular?
Today Bandcamp is donating 100% of their share of profits to the Voting Right Project. What are some albums you like that are on Bandcamp?
Also recommend Circuit Des Yeux's Reaching for Indigo, beautiful music that I find hard to classify https://circuitdesyeux.bandcamp.com/album/reaching-for-indigo
hey everyone writing code: you can't get around this. code does not exist in a noble mathematical void which absolves you of accountability. any system which people touch is tied into the fabric of society, and should be scrutinized for potential to do harm.
