Josh, this was my favorite newsletter of yours yet. In fact, I’d love to share your answer on my substack (if you’re down with that, that is!). It’s all about taking the scenic and/or non-traditional route to family building and learning stuff along the way, and I think you nailed this advice to Anonymous (who can come sit next to me any time). Plus, the English teacher in me is cackling SO nerdily at these lines about Moby Dick and Hester Prynne.

Excellent, as usual. One note: we are going to assume you’re a Wait Wait panelist unless you tell us otherwise. You can drop that unless you’re still reveling in your post host glory, in which case, carry-on.
