Winter is over (mostly, kind of, we think) and it’s (sort of) spring. So, we’re kicking off this delightful season by taking a page from Ross Gay’s The Book of Delights and talking about all the little things that delight us, from ducks and squirrel heists to Twitter threads and great tunes. (Also, if you’re allergic to gratitude lists, know that a list of delights is not the same thing, for reasons we’ll explain.)
Our next episode will be an Ask Us Anything so send in your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
