  • Unmarked Graveyard

    I’m sad that the Unmarked Graveyard series has ended. It is a deeply engaging series that looked at the lives of the anonymous people who surround us and reminds us that we are all only a heartbeat away from becoming an unknown, anonymous body in the eyes of authorities—lost with no past and buried in an unmarked mass grave, little more than biological waste. I genuinely wish the series would continue restoring names and lives to the dead by telling their stories.

    ... and sometimes sadder, but in a beautiful way, like the vastness of the sea or the everchanging waves of faces in a big city.

  • Love radio diaries

    I love the podcast I subscribed to, Radio Diaries. But I really don’t love when shows lend their feeds to other shows and suddenly I’m subscribed to and downloading a show I didn’t choose. I get highlighting another show here and there, sharing an episode, etc, but doing this feed swap thing where now this is an entirely different show automatically downloading into my device feels like a bait and switch.
