Hello, friends!

What could we learn from our neighbors if we'd only pay attention? This week's double shot of content greatness swings us from the depths of one individual's lived experience today back to a thermometer under the tongue of the collective in the form of the sensationalized, shock-hungry daytime television of the 1980s and '90s.

These selections come to us courtesy of Steyer content writer and project manager, Josh Krenz. He writes:

"Strawberry Fields, Forever?" is a personal story detailing the experience of growing up as the child of migrant farm workers in Watsonville, California. Artfully written, it delves into the city's dark past, the life her parents wanted for her, and the barriers that still exist for her as a student at Yale during COVID. Full transparency: this essay came to me from my sister and was written by her former student.

As platforming has become a bigger and bigger part of daily discussion, I was surprised to find some big insights in this episode of the "American Hysteria" podcast detailing the history of trashy talk shows. You know, Donahue, Jenny Jones, Jerry Springer... When we think about who does and does not get to have their voice heard in this country, it's interesting to see how exploitative media can in turn be exploited for good and bad.

Editor's note: The episode kicks off with a content warning about offensive references to the LGBTQIA+ community. Listen with discretion.
