Reminder — Bette’s Weekly Happy Hour Registration
Please register for our weekly Tuesday Happy Hour — a wellness checkin for global newsies — Tuesday, August 29, 12 pm PT
***Registration link for ‘Bette’s Happy Hour’ is located below the paywall — thanks to my generous patrons, you can join our global pro-democracy community at half-off for the first year for another day. Paid members receive invites to our ‘Speakeasy’ zoom salons, access to all archives, including podcasts, and the American Monsters series. Upgrade or join at the Founding Member rate for special monthly invites***
Please watch RadPod’s interview from today with Dr. Ian Garner, author of ‘Z Generation — Into the Hearts of Russia’s Fascist Youth’. I felt it was important to not let the psychological numbing of war bump the fact that Russia is trafficking Ukraine children, and worse, off front of mind. Garner offers an excellent framework to motivate people to support Ukraine.
In addition, please read my latest in Byline Supplement today. It’s a tear jerker:
I continue work started on these pages to offer a bigger picture of why we need to listen to trees. They’re trying to tell us something.
If you do not have a subscription to Byline Supplement, please consider supporting our vibrant team of independent investigative journalists. If you are unable to do so at this time, and you would like to read my article, please do reach out to email@example.com.
Bette members: please register for Tuesday’s Happy Hour and do note, when news breaks, our Happy Hours often become informative sessions, as occurred last week, and a little birdie told me Monique may be joining us again so I am looking forward to that. We have many new members — I’ve been breaking personal records both in readership and membership, and I thank you.
Just a reminder, each week we alternate the time so as many people from around the world can checkin. Our Happy Hour time for this week is 12 pm PT, which is 3 pm New York time.
Although the Happy Hour was inspired as a wellness check, where we each offer suggestions of how we stay well during trouble times, it’s okay that we also chat about breakers and fears. That’s part of how of we do this as a community — empathy, listening, sharing.
Since many of you have reached out about my reflections from the desert to offer your experiences, I am hoping members share their happy nature places with the group on Tuesday.
I’m glad you are here.
