Heavy listen. Hella informative. Def depressing. Most of all, it shows what we all know: we gotta save ourselves.
I just reported and produced a radio documentary for @kpfa & @ReportingHealth on the surge of opioid overdoses in unhoused communities in Oakland, interviewing people who use drugs, advocates, county workers. It would mean the world to me if you listened: kpfa.org/featured-episode/sp…

If you've got a minute today, carve out some time to listen (and read!) @arielboone's in-depth, gripping, and heart-wrenching reporting on opioid overdoses among unhoused folks in Oakland.

@KPFA's @arielboone just dropped an incredibly moving and gripping radio story about the opioid overdose crisis in unhoused communities in the East Bay. This is what 16 months of solid original reporting looks like! Give it a listen here: bit.ly/3tXvbQj

I finished my @ReportingHealth fellowship today and published my final piece in the series. (!!) It’s joy time. Finally went to the dahlia garden in golden gate park!

I learned a lot from this extensively researched article by @arielboone. it goes far deeper than the headline suggests by exploring why and how overdoses are occurring, what people are doing to help each other, and what the government is (and isn't) doing. oaklandside.org/2021/09/14/o…

Great review and phenomenal headline for a story on debt cancellation: "Owe, no you don't"
In her latest book, @astradisastra explores debt and what we really owe each other in a wide-ranging new collection of essays. @haymarketbooks @TeddyOstrow indypendent.org/2021/09/owe-…

omg. Sasha Velour, talking about her grandmother narrowly avoiding dying in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, bringing attention to worker's rights and labor activism on the occasion of the "In America" met gala. Yes!
In response to this year’s Met Gala theme “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”: a short story about the shirtwaist, my great-grandmother Goldie, and a narrowly escaped tragedy...

My daughter was born earlier this year. I want her to be taken care of if anything happens to me, so I recently applied for life insurance. Unfortunately @landg_usa denied my application. Why you ask? Because I've bought naloxone so no one dies of an overdose when I'm around.
