Time for a post since there are a bunch of new people!

I'm an at Wirecutter, though I'm going to try and not talk about work here because being in in 2018 is mostly existential horror and gnashing of teeth.

I need to set aside a few hours, put on a podcast, and unsubscribe from hundreds of shitty promo emails that flood my inboxes

Happy Monday friends, good luck on your attempts to overthrow the system this week!

Oh hey, for y'all folks who, like me, can't do black tea but really miss chai, Harney & Sons makes a version with green tea, called Chai Hara. It's got a great flavor, though be warned that it's very finely ground.
