Dear Note to Self listeners,

Does it feel like summer is speeding relentlessly by? We feel it, too: the incessant news cycle, the anxieties over data breaches, the question of staying productive even as our brains long for a vacation, of keeping our relationships intimate even as we crave space. These questions are more important (and complicated) than ever. And we’ve missed exploring them with you.

Which is why we are still hard at work figuring out the next phase of Note to Self, your guide to this accelerating world. Watch this space.

Meanwhile, some news from Manoush. She and Jen Poyant launched their own company! We are so proud and excited for them, and we urge you to check out their first project, a podcast called Zig Zag. They’re documenting their own journey as co-founders of a new media start-up, while taking on capitalism, cryptocurrency, and the future of journalism. No big deal.
And in other happy news, Manoush’s book, Bored and Brilliant, is coming out in paperback on September 4. That’s plenty of time to read it on the beach and make the most of your fall. Pre-order it now.



We love making stories with you, dear Note to Self listeners, because you’re always game to share your voices and time with us. Now, we're asking you to share your ears--by taking an early listen to a new project from WNYC Studios. 

Meet Chris Garcia. He's a comedian, and he's always incorporated stories about his Cuban-American family into his sets. But after his father died from Alzheimer's, Chris started using his comedy to process his own grief. He also started talking to other comedians who had lost their parents. Turns out, funny people have really moving conversations about this very unfunny thing.
We're sharing Chris' project with you because we want your feedback. So check it out, and then tell us what you think here. And thank you.


In other podcast news, our colleagues here at WNYC Studios have been rolling out more new shows we think you’ll love.

The Realness takes you behind rap star Prodigy’s music to his life with sickle cell anemia, revealing how his condition touched almost every part of his life: from the sound of his rhymes to the circumstances of his death.

In the summer of 2016, a police shooting upended the life of Arnaldo Rios Soto, a 26-year old, non-speaking, autistic man. Aftereffect is a podcast that tells Arnaldo’s story — a hidden world of psych wards, physical abuse and chemical restraints — and asks the question: What made Arnaldo’s life go so wrong?


Already nostalgic for the summer? Us too. Relive World Cup fever with American Fiasco, the story of the 1998 World Cup - and the American team that blew it. Hosted by Roger Bennett of the Men in Blazers podcast.
