BIFF BOFF BAM SOCK #8, $6, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 28 pgs.

The fact that this zine is subtitled “For Your Health” made me want to watch a bunch of Dr. Steve Brule videos, but I refrained and instead dove in to the twenty-eight pages that hope to aid the reader in making sense of the American health insurance system. Considering how complex the system is, Anna did a great job at distilling the basics and explaining frequently used terms like deductible, co-pay, premium, COBRA, and more. The last section gives her opinions on the health insurance industry and she has some skin in the game since her husband had cancer. So I appreciated getting her two cents on the issue. As someone who has navigated the insurance system a lot over the past twenty years (thanks, mental illness!) and who is the son of an insurance agent, I commend Anna on doing a solid job. She has her shit down and even taught me a few things, not to mention she includes great resources for the reader to learn more. Recommended. –Kurt Morris (annajobeck.com)
