Our producer Kat made rainbow sprinkle hamantaschen with her kids this weekend. And then drew one. (No, it’s not a sushi. She makes radio for a living, not drawings, ok?)

In last week’s show, psychologist Guy Winch talked about the joys and pitfalls of posting family pictures. Writer Charlotte Philby talked about quitting Instagram, then rejoining to connect with far-off friends. And you shared your stories, hundreds and hundreds of them.

Maybe once in a while, a drawing is enough.
