  • Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers

    Story

    Anne Lamott is known for her perceptive and funny writings about spirituality. Listeners of all ages have followed her faith journey through decades of trial and error (sometimes more error than Annie wanted), and in her new book, she has coalesced all she knows about prayer to three essentials: Help, Thanks, and Wow. It is these three prayers - asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating all that we have and all that is good, and feeling awe at the beauty of the world around us - that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward.

  • The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

    Story
    (359)

    In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. Yet, as legal star Michelle Alexander reveals, today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against convicted criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans.

    Jeremy says: "An essential read. A horrifying reality."
    "Excellent, important work"

    Story
    Would you listen to The New Jim Crow again? Why?

    Definitely. It was eye opening, informative, and well-written.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book illuminated a huge social and racial issue in the U.S. It was written in an accessible and understandable way.


    What about Karen Chilton’s performance did you like?

    Her reading is expressive and keeps the listener engaged.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    I learned a ton about the workings of the criminal justice system that I didn't know.
