In on the joke: The politics of late night comedy

(09/11/19 4:00am)

I remember New York City being bone-cold the March of my freshman year. I was standing in line for a live taping of “Late Night with Stephen Colbert.” It was Winter Storm Stella that March, and I huddled outside with strangers to keep warm before the show started. A Californian in New York, braving a storm to see Stephen Colbert in the flesh. 

Don't eat the West Union fish

(09/11/19 4:00am)

It’s the beginning of the new school year, and for The Chronicle opinion section that means an onslaught of patronizing columns directed towards first-years written by people vastly unqualified to give any sort of life advice. I have no interest in reading how one year at Duke taught you the importance of stress management or how it took time for you to make this new environment feel like a home. I don’t need a thousand words to tell me that college life presents you with a lot of options but you should probably only commit to a few; and while we’re at it (even though it’s off topic) I may as well mention that the column about “Radical Randys” pissed me off too. 

Nicholas School researcher on why UN treaty doesn't preserve aquatic biodiversity

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Are we all just soulless pigs?

(09/10/19 5:28pm)

Dear Unlicensed Ethicist:  “Who tf cracked an egg and left it on the kitchen floor? Do you not have any sense of accountability?” These sentences, which I read in the “Randolph ‘22” GroupMe just before leaving Duke after freshman year, rattled around in my head all summer. Indeed, who was that shameless egg-cracker? And seriously, on the kitchen floor?
