1: The Book of Statuses
Play episode · 1 hr 1 min

It’s 2015 and one Brooklyn middle school is about to receive a huge influx of new students.

In this episode, Chana Joffe-Walt, a reporter, follows what happens when the School of International Studies’ 6th grade class swells from 30 mostly Latino, Black and Middle Eastern students, to 103 — an influx almost entirely driven by white families.

Everyone wants “what’s best for the school” but it becomes clear that they don’t share the same vision of what “best” means.

Desairology (MORTUARY MAKE-UP) with Monica Torres
What happens when you die? Cosmically, no one knows. But cosmetically, Desairologist Monica Torress knows everything. This friendly Phoenix funeral director shares her secrets for giving the dearly departed the greatest glam on their “special day.” She chats practical preservation techniques, spooky questions, her influences, the newest make-up lines, formaldehyde, mourning and grief, and how to make sure you look like *you* -- or Dolly Parton -- when your loved ones say their goodbyes. Also: her most memorable cases and JUST the pep talk you needed to follow your dreams.   Follow Monica Torres at Instagram.com/coldhandshosts and Twitter.com/coldhandshosts NXT Gen Mortuary Support: nxtgenmortuarysupport.com A donation went to the Hi Precious Scholarship: nxtgenmortuarysupport.com/scholarship/ Sponsors of Ologies: alieward.com/ologies-sponsors More links at alieward.com/ologies/desairology Transcripts & bleeped episodes at: alieward.com/ologies-extras Become a patron of Ologies for as little as a buck a month: www.Patreon.com/ologies OlogiesMerch.com has hats, shirts, pins, totes and now… MASKS.
