The Age of the Influencer Has Peaked. It’s Time for the Slacker to Rise Again

Back in the 1990s, our heroes were slackers: the dudes and the clerks, the stick-it-to-the-man, stay-true-to-yourself burnouts we saw in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Slacker, and Reality Bites.

The 10 Best Self-Help Podcasts Right Now

Self-help podcasts are proliferating nearly as fast as bad tweets, for an obvious reason: everyone has room for improvement (except Keanu Reeves, who is already perfect), and everyone listens to podcasts because they're useful and intellectual, like a New Yorker tote bag in audio form. Self-help thrives in podcast form because, let's face it, this is the only technological medium where nuance and open, honest dialogue are valued, rather than gleefully dismembered by hordes of avatars wearing wraparounds.   GQ
