Note: Because of our recording schedule, we didn’t talk in this episode about Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, was fatally shot by a police officer in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis-St. Paul area, MN. To support Daunte Wright’s girlfriend, Chyna, and son, Daunte Jr., check out this post from @holisticheaux, who is in direct contact with and collecting funds for them. And if you need it, here’s Rachel’s VICE piece, Self-Care Tips for Black People Who Are Really Going Through It Right Now.


Here in the U.S. it’s looking like enough people will be vaccinated by summer that we’ll be able to do at least some of the stuff we’ve been missing since the pandemic started last year. But the idea of socializing like we did Before feels….overwhelming. This week, we talk about how we’re planning on approaching re-entry. We also discuss some of the online discourse about this moment in the pandemic, as well as post-pandemic friend breakups.
