With a monumental election on the horizon, we want to bring up a few recent events that reveal some sort of truth amid the confusion. From the N.B.A. bubble to the fly in Mike Pence’s debate-night hair to the HBO series “Lovecraft Country,” these are the moments that point us beyond the present, to be our best and greatest selves.
“Still Processing” is produced by Hans Buetow and edited by Sara Sarasohn and Sasha Weiss, with editorial oversight from Wendy Dorr and Lisa Tobin. Our engineer is Marion Lozano. Our theme music is by Kindness. It’s called “World Restart,” from the album “Otherness.”
