CULTURE & ARTS 11/29/2018 04:23 pm ET From the infuriating to the inspirational, these are the best series that earbuds had to offer this year. By Jillian Capewell “We’re not experts.” It’s a necessary disclaimer that comes, in some form or another, at the start of so many podcasts that dip into beauty or legal or medical advice. The hosts of “Forever 35,” a show that’s more personal reflections on self-care than a WebMD-like lifestyle resource, offer such a caveat before each episode kicks into gear. “We’re just two friends who like to talk about serums,” they remind their unseen audience.

From the editor: Why we sent a reporter to work as a private prison guard I started applying for jobs in private prisons because I wanted to see the inner workings of an industry that holds 131,000 of the nation’s 1.6 million prisoners. As a journalist, it’s nearly impossible to get an unconstrained look inside our penal system. When prisons do let reporters in, it’s usually for carefully managed tours and monitored interviews with inmates. … [Read more...] about My Four Months as a Private Prison Guard: A Mother Jones Investigation
