On this bonus episode from our friends at Slate's The Waves podcast: On this week’s episode of The Waves, Slate staff writer Heather Schwedel and Slate senior editor Rebecca Onion sit down to talk about New York magazine cover story “Canceled at 17,” which features a boy who was ostracized by his peers after he showed a nude of his girlfriend. The talk about whether the article is a display of “himpathy,” and the fact that the writer had a personal connection to the school that she did not initially disclose. (New York magazine’s statement on that matter is available here.)

In Slate Plus, Rebecca and Heather talk about what they regret from high school.


Rebecca: Apple+’s series For All Mankind.

Heather: Netflix’s series, The Summer I Turned Pretty.

Podcast production by Cheyna Roth with editorial oversight by Shannon Palus and Alicia Montgomery.
