Speaking of Amazon

Oh right, how could I forget to mention in that previous post that Amazon is one of the main sources of revenue for Daddy Types via its affiliate link/kickback program. Also that it's apparently a family-hostile quant-obsessed corporate hellcult?

Perhaps you've read the article about Amazon's brutal office culture (which is separate from its even more punitive warehouse culture) in the NY Times by my hero, friend, and former editor Jodi Kantor, which she and her colleagues spent six months reporting? Six months while she has also been busy making a baby?? She's due in a couple of weeks. Just amazing.

Meanwhile, perhaps you've also read the outstanding work of her husband Ron Lieber on the American realities of paternity leave? I am glad to know he will be taking it soon.
