The 33 Project

Morning morning. Friends, I slept past 8am today. I’m wild!

As a result everything is off, lol. I’m late for all things, I can’t find anything, the chaos has begun. So…let’s just get into the recs for this week, ok:

1/ Super interesting assessment of boys in the UK and how their lives have been affected by their phones and the internet. It’s pretty bleak, tbh. H/t to Meghan for this companion read on the “growing gulf between men and women”. Interesting times.

2/ Interesting first person take on how messed up psychiatric care in America is and how psychedelics are the answer.

It can be boiled down to one sentence: in modern mental health care, we don’t treat the roots of mental illness but merely (and often poorly) the symptoms. We earn a PhD in how to be mentally ill but learn little about how to be mentally well.

3/ This looks fun. Anyone want to watch with me?

Bonus/ If you can, please catch Here There Are Blueberries at New York Theater Workshop. It’s a wonderful show that just became a finalist for the Pulitzer! It’s running through June, so you have time! If you need help with tickets, let me know.

That’s it for this week. Hope all is well with you and have a wonderful Thursday.
