WAIW | The Worst Air in the World?

Image contains a photo of a man on the left-hand side wearing a face mask over his mouth and nose. To the right of the man, a hazy sky is visible above some trees in the horizon, a green rice field, and a narrow road.

Recently, Chiang Mai, Thailand had the worst air quality in the world, so I decided to take another WAIW episode to talk about the burning season. Read More »

#TBT | Endometriosis and Veganism

Image contains a medium-dark brown wooden background. On the wood, there is a variety of fruit and vegetables. In the centre, there is a papaya and coming from the left and right of the fruit are two small stalks of a leafy green vegetable. Nestled under the leaves at the end of each stalk are lemons, and just below each lemon on the right and left there is a small hot pepper. The whole image is meant to represent the female reproductive system.

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month, so today seemed like a perfect time to throwback to a piece about just that from T.O.F.U. #11. Read More »

WAIW | Burning Season in Chiang Mai

Image contains two photos that split the screen horizontally. The photo above shows green rice fields with trees and some buildings in the distance. Farther away in the background, a large dark hill can be seen below some blue clouds. The photo below that contains a similar scene, but the hill is no longer visible and the sky is grey and hazy.

When planning your travels, you're bound to get plenty of warnings from people about things to avoid. Find out in this week's WAIW episode just why burning season should be one of them. Read More »

T.O.F.U. #14 | Progress Report

Image contains a photo of a man sitting on a floor with two dogs. One dog is on his lap and facing the camera with his tongue out, and the other is on the floor staring at the man.

I've been trying to plan a good time to record an update on progress with the next issue, but things never quite fell into place. So, today I decided to just go for it, dogs and all. Read More »

TBT | Veganism Is Not An Option

Image contains a white skull with a series of plant leaves and flowers on the right-hand side. On the left, there are pills, a pill bottle, a syringe, and a weight scale.

Entering recovery for an eating disorder isn't easy at any point, but when you're doing so as a vegan, things can be even more complicated. In today's throwback, Rey Weyler shares their account of just that from the issue on disordered eating and veganism. Read More »

T.O.F.U. #14 | Call For Submissions Extended (Again)

Image contains a notepad with illegible text in black ink and a pen on the left-hand side. In the foreground, there is text in the middle of the screen on a strip of blue that says "T.O.F.U. #14 |" in white and "Call For Submissions" in black. Below the word "submissions", the word "Extended" is in white.

When it comes to rounding-up authors for a new issue, I often take it as a sign that I'm focusing on a good topic when the task proves difficult. With that in mind, the fact that I'm extending the deadline for submissions for #14 again must mean I'm onto something, right? Read More »
