A Playlist We’re Looking Forward To

  All of us rad-ish writers have different things going on this summer, but one thing we all fit into our summer plans was to spend a weekend together in July to hang out, brainstorm about the blog, and soak up some much needed California sunshine (Santa Barbara, to be specific). For the drive up (or down, depending on who…

How College Changed the Food I Eat

  Before college, I ate mostly Chinese food that my mom cooked (and still wish I could eat that everyday). I also had a great love for pita bread from a Persian/Mediterranean store by my house and Souplantation. When I got to college, I thought about the amazing classes that would take, the friends I would make, and the places…

If You Like This, You’ll Probably Like That

If you’re looking for new music but don’t want to wander too far from what you already know you like, you’ve come to the right place.

Advertisements are (Almost) Everywhere

A couple of summers ago, I was interning at a now defunct media company.

One pioneering company I looked into, JCDecaux, got its start by…

Home Sweet Home

Having moved one too many times over the past few years, I now have a good sense of what I can do to make my living spaces a bit more me! I moved into my current (tiny) apartment last August and wanted to share a couple things that never fail to lift my spirits (the spirits that govern material things).  …

More concretely, I am excited to put my creative skills to use and help build an online smorgasbord of rad-ish thoughts and ideas.   Tell us about some things you think are rad. Animals…

Title: A Long Way Home Ganesh Talai as seen on Google Earth After watching Lion, shedding a few tears during the movie, and then spending the next two weeks obsessively listening to Never Give Up by Sia, an excellent song featured on the soundtrack, I knew that it was time to finally pick up the book that the movie was…
