  • another usual Tea With Alice episode; very pleasant, but very little new to learn
  • every time Alice Fraser and guest talk about the problems of identity politics and the difficulty of walking the line between having a label and having only a label, I get a feeling that this is one of those problems that you can only talk about, and where what you do won’t solve the bad behaviour of others, nor change the incentives (probably). I understand why they talk about it, but it just seems to be circling the same problem endlessly.
  • Kate Leaver’s thoughts on when to let things go, when to continue to try and persuade, and when to be proud of having annoyed somebody are interesting; and one data point in calibrating what your own response should be.
