Welcome to the 24th volume of WizeWorld, our weekly collection of handpicked stories and sounds to help bolster your sense of wizdom and curiosity. This week we've got an exposé into the impossibility of dating during the pandemic, how baking aids the engine of civil rights, an unhurried rhythmic mix of seductive mid-2000s soul and a look into how a furniture salesman helped save Houston. This week prioritizes heart and soul, how we survive and what keeps the rhythm beating whether it’s in ourselves, our cities and our priorities.
