    That article on Tinder. I’ve always been rather ignorant about dating apps having never used one, but I know many, many people who’ve found their partners/spouses using all the iterations from match.com to tinder, but still…the article makes me feel like (the collective) “we’ve” moved into a radically different cultural norm. It is a way of being and interacting I don’t recognize. I wonder if I’m aging out of these new cultural parameters. Put me on the ice flow.

      I’m one of those people, and I agree with Kim, this is the best article I’ve read on online dating. However…. I know turn ons/offs can be highly specific, but judgements like “he smelled like corn” made me cringe a bit.

    I was so weirdly happy for the discussion of Carmy on this week’s podcast, confirming my suspicion that he is objectively the sexiest thing on this flaming planet at the moment. The absolute LUST I experience watching that show is confounding.

    I listened to this week’s podcast and liked it, but could you please, please do a show about more than perimenopause. I am now nine years post-menopausal, and I took HRT but had to stop after it had been a number of years. But I still have SO many related symptoms and problems (news alert: hot flashes often don’t go away even after years and years!), and I know from my friends’ experiences that I am not alone. It would be great if you could collect readers’ questions about this period of life and answer them in a future episode. Consider this a plea of desperation.

      I have a friend who says black cohosh works for hot flashes – but it takes a month or so to kick in. (Sorry if you already tried it …)

    The Vulture book list has overlooked Gabrielle Hamilton’s book Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef. She does a terrific job describing the extreme challenges of owning and running a restaurant. Her essay about the closing of her NYC restaurant Prune when the pandemic hit is also excellent. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/23/magazine/closing-prune-restaurant-covid.html
