Sorry this round-up is a bit later than usual. I had a tech crisis with a podcast recording this morning and it threw everything out.
SCROLLING • I was fascinated by this piece about King Charles III: the king (finally) who's spent his life ruled by powerful women. • This five year old piece by Zadie Smith on the Queen's enduring popularity is also an interesting read. • That success timeline we've been living our lives by? It's a bit screwed. (Surprise!) • Great piece by Emma Gannon about what happens if you really disconnect. • This is a must-read: one woman's journey into homelessness. • Got hope fatigue? Here's how to feel less anxious about things you can't control.
