I ordered (and was billed for, I think) a copy of The Plot Against the Baby a few months ago and haven't received it. (I'm contacting you this way because I didn't see an option on your website.) Can you help me out? Thanks.

I didn't say it did. I address inequality in the last chapter of my book. This was simply advice for students who might otherwise go to the Ivy League about where else to look.

Okay, last call for applications for the 2019-20 Tivnu Gap Year, the 9-month immersive, intensive, hands-on, totally awesome Jewish social-justice gap year in Portland, OR. Financial aid available (we have met 100% of need to date). Please pass the word!

Hey Portland, I'm having a public discussion in North Portland on September 1 with the awesome Blake Boles, a young un-schooling/alternative schooling/self-education advocate.

Thanks for the tweet! I'm just finishing a book based on this article. I'd love to send you a copy when it's done.

Thanks for the shout out! I'm just finishing a book based on this article. It's all about how artists (musicians, writers, visual artists, etc.) are making a living these days. Should be out next year.

New podcast episode. Audio quality not ideal, but the conversation goes in some interesting directions. C. 21:30 we touch on some of the material in the book I'm currently working on, about how (and whether) artists are making a living in the new economy.

We're in the final recruitment stretch for the 2019-20 Tivnu Gap Year, the awesome Jewish gap year in Portland. College acceptances are in, & kids are weighing their options. If you know anyone the program might be right for, PLEASE tell them about it.

New podcast. We start talking about the college admissions bribery scandal around 25:30. I answer the question, "will the system change because of this?"

Yes, I do outline solutions. And no, online learning is not one of them.

They're telling me that I'll probably be on around 1:30 PM Eastern, but that isn't definite. Again, this is on MSNBC to talk about the college cheating scandal.
