The secret story of Ann Lowe, in fact, the very FIRST black person to become a sought-after fashion designer. My heart broke when I heard what Jackie O said. I wonder how different Ann's life would have been had she been given proper credit. Somebody needs to make a movie about Ann asap.

This episode is so important. Most of our world has been designed with men and cishet male bodies as the default, at best making life for women more uncomfortable (office air conditioning), and at worst killing them (misdiagnosis of heart attacks, car seat belts).

This episode is heartbreaking. We tell young men from lower income backgrounds that football is the only way they can get a college education and then the sport damages their brains. I’m glad there is so much good reporting bringing these stories to light.
