What was meant to be an innocent email, a simple question for a student podcast, spawned into something much bigger? The first reply to the email had the reply-all box clicked. Simple mistake, right? The following response did the same thing. Then the next. Mr. Hoban’s message resulted in a 140-email-long thread spanning over two hours. Over a hundred students participated. Students’ devices were clogged with notifications in the middle of the school day for those two hours. One student, Aletheia Watts-Smith ’22, compiled all of the student responses into a Spotify playlist. It includes nearly four hours of music, all curated by the Hun community.
