This season Mr. Arthur — your new favorite music teacher — leads lessons in timbre, beat, rhythm and pitch. The under minute episodes are interactive and accessible, compelling kids and adults alike to participate by responding and performing along with the class. This is a tale of two schools. One has a waiting list of people scrambling to get their child admitted, while the other one is only at a quarter of its capacity and is threatening to close.

The two hosts are Mark Winston Griffith, a community organizer, journalist and Brooklyn native, and Max Freedman, a teacher, audio producer and self-admitted gentrifier. Together they tell the story of a neighborhood grappling with race, class and power on the battleground of its schools. They interview parents and students, teachers and politicians, and landlords and activists to illuminate a thorny urban upheaval happening across the country. Nyge Turner and Merk Nguyen, both 22, host round table discussions, interviews and advice sessions about the concerns of young people today: debt, sexual health, depression, cannabis, cuffing season.
While aimed squarely at the current generation finding their adult footing, the hosts are ebullient enough and the conversation smart enough that any-stage adult could enjoy. The German podcast market has been growing tremendously in the last few years and fortunately for Americans, Germans are eager to use podcasts to practice their English. They weigh both sides of wildlife reintroduction arguments, interview youth about the voluntarily child-free movement to lower carbon footprints, and go dumpster diving to discover the hypocrisy of laws that make throwing large amounts of perfectly consumable food away legal, but fishing around in the trash for them illegal.
Millennials and Gen Xers have been significantly more stressed than older generations since And Americans as a whole have seen increased stress because of the political tumult since the presidential election. Fifty-six percent of people said reading the news stresses them out, and Millennials and Gen Xers were significantly more likely than older people to say so.
Lately that news often deals with political infighting, climate change, global crises, and the threat of nuclear war. On September 6, the day after the Trump administration announced it was rescinding DACA—the deferred-action protection program for undocumented immigrants—Nicholas sent out her typical newsletter for the upcoming full moon. It read , in part:.
The full moon in Pisces May help us to empathize with others May we use this full moon to continue to dream up, and actively work toward, creating a world where white supremacy has been abolished. In , when Sandhya was 32 years old, she downloaded the Astrology Zone app, looking for a road map. She felt lonely, and unappreciated at her nonprofit job in Washington, D.
She wanted to know when things would get better and Astrology Zone had an answer.

So Sandhya spent the next year making room for Jupiter. She started staying home more often, cooking for herself, applying for jobs, and going on more dates. Jupiter entered Leo on July 16, That same July, Sandhya was offered a new job. That December, Sandhya met the man she would go on to marry. But I followed what the app was saying.
So I credit some of it to this Jupiter belief. Humans are narrative creatures , constantly explaining their lives and selves by weaving together the past, present, and future in the form of goals and expectations. I take such a long time to make decisions because my Mars is in Taurus.
My boss will finally recognize all my hard work when Jupiter enters my tenth house. A combination of stress and uncertainty about the future is an ailment for which astrology can seem like the perfect balm. I have a story in my head. I was just hoping certain things would happen in my life, and I wanted to see if I am lucky enough for them to happen. People are starting to get sick of a life lived so intensely on the grid.
They wish for more anonymity online.
Except, perhaps the questions of who you really are, and what life has in store for you. Ruby Warrington is a lifestyle writer whose New Age guidebook Material Girl, Mystical World came out in May —just ahead of the wave of astrology book sales this summer. It seems we may be at a similar turning point.
Bugbee, the editor-in-chief of The Cut, noticed this shift a couple years ago.
The New Age of Astrology
There is more nuance than this statistic allows for. Many mainstream examinations of astrology as a trend are deeply concerned with debunking. The people I spoke to for this piece often referred to astrology as a tool, or a kind of language—one that, for many, is more metaphorical than literal. Michael Stevens, a year-old who lives in Brooklyn, was in the quarter-life crisis season of life around the time of the total solar eclipse in August this year. And then shit started to happen in life.
She was annoyed, he says, that he called her at the end of the month, which is when she writes her famously lengthy horoscopes. But then she asked him for his sign—Sagittarius. It sounds totally like me.
Still, he says the conversation made him feel better; it spurred him to take action. In the months between his call with Miller and our conversation in October, Stevens left his advertising job and found a new one in staffing. Shortly before we spoke, he and his girlfriend broke up.
Beusman, who hired Gat at Broadly, shares her philosophy. And of course they were. That was the point after all. Digital natives are narcissistic, some suggested, and astrology is a navel-gazing obsession. It feels simultaneously cosmic and personal; spiritual and logical; ineffable and concrete; real and unreal. It can be a relief, in a time of division, not to have to choose. It can be freeing, in a time that values black and white, ones and zeros, to look for answers in the gray.
7 Things We’re Looking Forward to at the Brooklyn Book Festival
The commander in chief is impulsive, disdains expertise, and gets his intelligence briefings from Fox News. What does this mean for those on the front lines? For most of the past two decades, American troops have been deployed all over the world—to about countries. During that time, hundreds of thousands of young men and women have experienced combat, and a generation of officers have come of age dealing with the practical realities of war.
They possess a deep well of knowledge and experience. For the past three years, these highly trained professionals have been commanded by Donald Trump. To get a sense of what serving Trump has been like, I interviewed officers up and down the ranks, as well as several present and former civilian Pentagon employees.
Among the officers I spoke with were four of the highest ranks—three or four stars—all recently retired. All but one served Trump directly; the other left the service shortly before Trump was inaugurated.
