Default The Podcast & Book Thread

What are you guys reading/ listening to?

As far as podcasts go I really like:

The (failing) New York Times daily podcast - about 20-30 minutes long; new episode every weekday; covers a major news story in-depth; it's a great listen and has replaced NPR as my go-to on my work commute

Malcolm Gladwell's Revisionist History - about 30-40 minutes long; Gladwell (one of my favorite authors) revisits a modern historical event/ happening and contextualizes it


My favorite novel of the year is The Force by Don Winslow. It's a morally ambiguous story about crooked cops in NYC and socioeconomic and political forces surrounding their actions. Absolutely fantastic, one of the best books I've ever read.

I also really liked IQ by Joe Ide which is an urban story about a smart, young black for-hire detective in Los Angeles. Definitely a lighter read than The Force.

My favorite nonfiction book of the year was Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. It's a funny, thoughtful, poignant biographical book about growing up mixed-race in post-apartheid South Africa.

Been listening to the Locked on Mavericks podcast ever since Nick Angstadt and Isaac Harris took it over a month ago... It's my daily addiction.

i am fond of writing articles for newspapers too. I started to write when I was a college student. Nowadays in work in local town newspaper. I tried to make articles unique and interesting for readers. Because in our days many people stop to buy and read paper newspapers. In my work I check newspaper template from https://thegoodocs.com/freebies/newspaper-templates/ because its helps me to automate some work process.

I’m reading The Wheel of Time for the 4th time. It’s only about 4.4 million words. It may take a few days.

Breaking Points is my go to podcast on my daily run. So nice to hear politics/daily news discussed in a way that isn't bubble tribal talk.
