And this morning on #amTWiB, the #MorningCrew discussed the tidal wave of trolls after Zerlina Maxwell, dragging a woman off the train is not the way to handle singing about Jesus, and it’s proven: L.Joy can not control her jukeboxing.

    Likewise, I am unable to control my beatboxing.

    Wow. Got this one all to meself. It’s a non-NFL Monday night and all but looks like people may not care for these TWIB recap redirect threads after all.

    I think it’s that we’re accustomed to wandering by Balloon Juice and reading a few paragraphs, then adding a bit to the conversation before going about our business.

    I’ve enjoyed listening what I have of TWIB… but the segments are a bit long to listen to all the way through. No offense meant to Elon James White.

    I thought the first podcast was interesting and important.

    I swing by later here when I have time, I don’t think this is their primary locale for worshipping dolphins. They’re free to yell at me for bookmarking laziness.

    I agree, from what I listened of it. But, just like listening to NPR Weekend re-runs of live weekly shows, (Kojo Nnamdi, Dian Rhem, whatever it is – I live in DC, so those are what WAMU tends to re-run) it’s not the same at 8:00 after eating dinner as it is during the day, live.

    I’m not exactly defending my position, just rationalizing it. I encourage the TWIB segments to continue, even if I and people like me don’t listen all the way through.

    Question for Elon:

    I use services that meter usage. It is more beneficial for me to use Stitcher for a long media stream.

    But your Stitcher feed is not up to date. Can you get the episodes to drop on Stitcher when you post them here?

    I prefer to read rather than listen or watch, but a couple of thoughts re race and education.

    One: no link, but several studies have shown that educational disparities are largely a product of cultural prejudices that people often internalize. Basic affirmation exercises have been enough to reduce or eliminate classroom racial disparities as well as gender disparities in fields where women are expected not to do well.

    Two: what I said a while ago. Very useful to know that disparities can go way down when you teach a bit higher on the Bloom scale.

    It’s really getting tiresome.
