I’ll be regularly updating this page with current literature, music, and other media that makes me think, keeps my creative juices flowing or just generally puts me in a better mood. Hopefully it’ll do the same for you.
And if you have any suggestions, please comment below (it wouldn’t be fair for me to subject you to all my likes without granting you the same courtesy!):
I’m constantly listening to music, whether I’m getting ready for/driving to work in the mornings, writing, working out or just hanging out on the Internet. My taste is pretty eclectic but I recently put together some jams that help me forget that Mondays suck. Here’s my “24” Spotify playlist and if you’re into more 80s/90s feel-good music, check this one out.
Some of my go-to artists at the moment are…
1. Bastille (both the “Bad Blood” and “Wild World” albums are aces)
4. Jonathan Thulin
5. Andrew Belle
1. “I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban” by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb (2013)
2. “You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life” by Jen Sincero (2013)
3. “Go Set a Watchman” by Harper Lee (2015)
4. “Steal Like An Artist” by Austin Kleon (2012)
As much as I’d love to be able to brag and say I’m a diehard NPR listener, it’s actually “The Dollop” that’s been taking up most of my podcast brain space. “The Dollop” is a bi-weekly American history podcast hosted by two comedians who cover some of the strangest, most outlandish events in the U.S.’s past. It’s freaking hilarious and I highly recommend the episode about Uber.
