An investigation of why we clap for people doing the least, and earnest recommendations of art, music, and writing you should applaud.

In Please Clap Shelby analyses our online world, modern dating life, and internet dramas illustrating everything with her famous drawings. From what it means to be a sexist woman, to the death of wife guys, her whimsy essays are always complimented with an image of Clem (Shelby’s dog that co-signs every issue).
