Sunday Reads: Price Gouging in a Pandemic, Short King Fauci and the Quarantine Poop Talk

What a week, y’all. If those first few weeks of quarantine were a cute, cozy, never-get-out-of-your-house-pants WFH situation, this week was pure cabin fever. Thankfully, there was plenty to read, starting with the week’s most popular story (by a long, long shot). It might not be for everyone, but it does paint an interesting portrait of the shady profiteer on the other side of a product shortage — even if that shortage happens to be the Nintendo Switch.

If that’s not your speed, maybe check out Tim Grierson’s ode to the late, great Bill Withers; or Blake Harper’s breakdown of the theoretical costs behind Entertainment 720’s ‘End of the World’ party on Parks and Rec; or this Magdalene Taylor explainer on how to prevent foggy glasses when you wear a face mask.

Whatever you’re into, this week had a little something for everybody — even “hunkles.”
