Our heroes find themselves crossing between strange, deadly, beautiful worlds, pursued by a foe they cannot comprehend. Can they grow strong enough to defeat their cosmic enemy? Or will their journey take them down a road from which they can never return? Magnus leads an expedition. Taako is tempted. Merle leads his congregation.
This week Bryan attended a rock concert featuring music only whales would love, while Erin shares her favorite dog songs. Also, Female Genital Mutilation is much more prevalent in the US than people know, and it still isn’t considered illegal in most states, and an article recently in the New York Times has been tracking Trump and his record regarding LGBTQ issues which has been a consistent failure.
Sarah brings the case against her husband, Eric. Eric likes wearing pants that are decorated to look like the American flag. But, Sarah thinks he wears the pants at inappropriate times. Who's right? Who's wrong?

The mid-2000s were a challenging time for all of us, particularly those who were enrolled in reality television programs like Dating in the Dark. This is a show in which strangers are trapped together in a cave, and then tasked with smooching their way out. Join us for another week of erudite discussion on this next-level skeleton-evacuating experience.
Comedian and author Evany Rosen returns to talk book writing, chicken nuggets, and the It trailer.

Every family has its own way of doing things and, now that our kids are old enough to compare our homes to their friends', suddenly there's a whole list of ways in which we, our kids' parents, ARE MONSTERS. Plus, Biz paves the way for weekend fun and Theresa visits a real forest. And we talk with writer Nefertiti Austin about her experience adopting children as a single woman of color.
In reference to our conversation with Nefertiti, here are some book recommendations from Gwen Glazer of the New York Public Library. These books are for children ages 10+, featuring protagonists who are people of color. Note these are categorized by gender -- the first listed are books featuring boy/male leads and below that are books featuring girl/female leads. As with any book, parents should read first to make sure it is suitable for your child. Thank you, Gwen!
Featuring boy/male leads:
As Brave as You by Jason Reynolds (Nefertiti after the show found this as well through her local librarian)
The Crossover and Booked by Kwame Alexander (these might skew older -- for a mature 10yo only)
The Cruisers series by Walter Dean Myers
Kinda Like Brothers by Coe Booth
Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis
Featuring girl/female leads:
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith

This week Bryan gets taught about weed culture, while Erin shares her awkward interaction at a local vegan/Mexican restaurant. Also, a contestant on Survivor was recently outed as Transgender by another contestant during the Tribal Council, and a Missouri lawmaker and allergist was upset about protections for women being passed and claim McDonald's and the Zoo are subject to more regulations than abortion clinics.
Micah brings the case against his girlfriend Jenny. Micah would like to buy a 3D printer for their home. Jenny thinks their apartment is too small. She thinks he should wait until they move into a bigger place.
SUBMITTED BY MICAH:
Click here to check out the printer that Micah would like. This is the space where he proposes the printer would live:
He says, "“As can be seen, the printer could comfortably fit beneath my computer desk--I would move the shelf that is currently down there to the place immediately to the right of the desk. The box that is currently in that spot would be moved to a more storage-y place since it's just holding random cords, PC parts, and other knickknacks that don't really need to be immediately accessible.”
SUBMITTED BY JENNY:
“I have made a short video of what our apartment looks like with some cameos from our dog Emmett.”
Click here to check out the video!
“I am also including a website with a list of places where you can 3D print. One of our friends has a membership at the Artisan's Asylum and has offered to let Micah used his space there so I've included their wiki on the machines they have.”
