“Talking about death, sex, and money is not news. It’s not news to say: ‘sometimes long term relationships are hard’ or ‘sometimes it’s embarrassing when you realize you’re not earning enough money.’ That’s not a news story. As a result, when we hear those stories, it’s often in the first paragraph in a story about health insurance coverage and then the rest of it is about policy.

It’s worth pausing and listening to what that experience is.” –Anna Sale
