Meyer: I just finished this amazing book called Homegoing. It’s about a family lineage from Africa, telling the story from generation to generation and how it comes to present day. Rawdon: I just read a short story by Michael Lewis about the aftermath of Katrina.
Meyer: I just came back from a few days in the southern Utah desert, and I’m about to spend a few days in August in New Mexico. I’m quite enamored with that landscape and that sense of ancient time. Rawdon: I’m incredibly inspired by Lin-Manuel Miranda. I’m one of the millions of people obsessed with Hamilton.
Meyer: The day after I got my driver’s license I drove to my job at 16, working at a sewing room that made small batch tailored cop uniforms. Rawdon: Before I was 16, I started a helium balloon service. It was much to the dismay of my parents, who had no interest in all the logistics, especially being that I couldn’t drive at the time.
Meyer: I grew up in such a small town where everyone knows your name. I value it now more as a parent, but I still appreciated that deep connection and accountability—that closeness it creates. Rawdon: I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, and the time I was most recently there I went to this vacant lot that had a couple of guys smoking meat. It was so Memphis. It’s probably not monitored by the government, but the authentic smell and taste just had so many layers of meaning to me.
Meyer: I’m really enjoying the Apple radio station of Electronic Chill. Rawdon: My children laughing.
Meyer: I’d like to be a better yogi. Rawdon: I would really love to be able to speak another language fluently.
