An essay by Visiting Assistant Professor of English Jacquelyn Ardam appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books Jan. 10. Her essay on the podcast My Favorite Murder helps her cope with the memory of the shooting at UCLA, where she studied and taught. “My Favorite Murder feels like a support group for anxious people who are calmed, if not satiated, by the knowledge, or something approximating knowledge, of the worst things that can happen to individuals with small lives, perpetrated by individuals with small lives,” she writes.
