David Milch, the creator of TV shows like “NYPD Blue” and “Deadwood,” has earned a reputation as one of the most intellectually fluent writers in the history of episodic television. Now, four years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, he can no longer remember the full trajectory of anything that he writes. “I have disabused myself of any thought of a normal future,” Milch says. “But I allow myself a provisional optimism about the possibilities of what time I will be allowed.” Tap the link in our bio to read about Milch’s long and successful career, and his efforts to keep working despite the indignities of Alzheimer’s disease.

In a far-right, white-supremacist group, Robbie Mullen found what felt like true brotherhood: “You believe you’re going to change the world with them.

"One in four American women will have an abortion, ninety-one per cent of them within the first trimester, either through the administration of oral medication or through an in-clinic vacuum-aspiration procedure that takes around ten minutes. For many women, an abortion is not only non-traumatic but a life-altering blessing."

Rhiannon Giddens is a singer, a songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, and even something of a historian, whose work reflects both the universality of folk music and the specific tradition of black American string-band music. Her multicultural background—black, white, Native American, and American—presents a particular challenge of self-definition: she is an artist of color who plays what she describes as “black non-black music” for mainly white audiences. Still, she has been unwilling to compromise her quest to remind people that string-band music is, in fact, black music.

David Jansen grew up during apartheid in South Africa. When he was in his early teens, his family was evicted from their property, and their house was dismantled. Millions of other black and mixed-race South Africans were forced off their land so that white farmers could take control of it.

In Sweden, every Saturday is effectively a national holiday, called lördagsgodis, which means “Saturday candy.” Each corner store has a wall of pick-and-mix bins, where customers select their own collection of candies.
