Berger, Kevin. "Why Do So Many Scientists Want to Be Filmmakers?" Nautilus (March 22, 2018)

Bursztynski, Maurice. " Interview with Darian Sahanaja (Brian Wilson’s band and musical consultant for Love And Mercy)." See Hear (April 17, 2016) ["In April, Maurice interviewed Darian Sahanaja (Wondermints and Brian Wilson Band) for Love That Album episode 89 on the final day of Brian's 2016 tour of Australia. The last part of the interview featured a discussion about Darian's work as musical consultant on Love And Mercy.With Tim and Bernie's blessing, Maurice thought it would be a good idea to present this segment as a bonus episode of See Hear.  Darian coached the brilliant Paul Dano to play piano in a style similar to Brian, and came up with the idea to use real musicians rather than actors to play The Wrecking Crew as they recorded Pet Sounds. Listen to Darian discuss the creative process in his work on the film."]

Crockford, Kade. "Real Sanctuary Means Ending Mass Policing." The Dig (March 25, 2018) ["Perhaps nothing has more defined the monstrosity of Donald Trump than his racist demonization and targeting of immigrants from Mexico, Muslim-majority countries, and those nations he deems "shitholes." But what's seldom reported is that one of the key mechanisms the administration has used to target immigrants was rolled out under Barack Obama. It's called Secure Communities, and it's the culmination of decades of policy-making and politicking that have intertwined the US systems of mass incarceration and immigrant enforcement — facilitating the growth of both.

Dredge, Allison. "Phantom Thread: An Insight Into Autism and Relationships." Clothes on Film (March 23, 2018) [ I'm struck by the fact that the author is willfully ignoring a key ingredient (action) in this cinematic relationship?]

Flannery, Tim. "Raised by Wolves." New York Review of Books (April 5, 2018)

Roderick, Leonie.   "The Groundbreaking Activism of Sex Workers." Broadly (March 8, 2017) ["Without sex workers, our activist landscape would look dramatically different—but don’t expect to read about their contribution in the history books."]

Shelby, Tommie and Brandon M. Terry. "MLK, Political Philosopher." The Dig (March 21, 2018) ["Tommie Shelby and Brandon M. Terry talk about their new book To Shape a New World: Essays on the Political Philosophy of Martin Luther King, Jr. King is often remembered for his soaring oratory. But the commonplace emphasis on his rhetoric in place of his ideas too often allows enemies of King's agenda to domesticate him or, worse, to weaponize his taken-out-of-context words to bolster the very forces of racism and oppression that King had struggled to defeat. Dan asks Shelby and Terry about King’s theory of nonviolence (more complicated than you might think), his debate with the Black Power movement, and his thinking on gender, hope, political economy, Beloved Community and more."]
