Doppio is going on hiatus while we figure out the best way to continue connecting with all of you. If you have any ideas or requests, write in to firstname.lastname@example.org. For now, this week's double shot of content greatness comes to us courtesy of Steyer COO and the originator of Doppio, Katelyn Reilly. She writes:
This weekend I watched all 85 minutes of The Way of the Househusband, an anime on Netflix about a yakuza boss who gives up his life of crime to focus on domestic matters and support his wife's corporate career ambitions. Don't even try coming at him — this man takes laundry extremely seriously. I loved the series for its clever gender-role play, absurd situation comedy, and slyly wholesome storyline.
The New Yorker's take on Alena Smith and her show, Dickinson ("spooky and bold, solemn and arch", "feminist"), is a really good companion read if you've seen the series to date. I fell hard for Smith's Emily and her extraordinary inner life; this piece offers more insight into how Smith and her team summoned her into being, and why.
