#OtD 24 Jun 1763 William Trent in Philadelphia recorded an attempt to use biological warfare against Native Americans. He wrote that British troops gave blankets and a handkerchief from a smallpox hospital to 2 chiefs during peace talks. More here: shop.workingclasshistory.com/c

which podcasts would you recommed for a 13-year-old who one day ago discovered there's actually excess food and empty apartments enough for everybody and people routinely die of hunger and exposure for no reason, just to appease the 1% who also burn twice as much carbon as the whole 50% poorest, and kid in question is feeling quite, political, about the world they just found themselves living in

rant, bad journalism 

Seeing some unfortunately-common and very shoddy reporting based on "we asked people what they thought of the economy and here's what they said" but framed as "this is what is happening in the economy". You can replace economy with any other complicated question, but journalism should be more than asking people who are not qualified to make statements without evidence and then reporting said statements as fact.

Not sure how to actually fix this problem though.

FREEBIE ALERT! Happy 2nd anniversary to my first-born book child! 😃 A child of the pandemic, it was released into the world on 17th June 2020.

Una consideración importante a la hora de mudarse de casa es dónde vivirán mis libros :)

Por suerte, la nueva casa ya tiene una mesita de noche y empapelado precioso, así que los libros tienen un nuevo hogar bien bonito.
