Some things I’ve enjoyed lately, in no particular order, and not necessarily only recent stuff:

The Staircase (TV): Unbelievably strange, sad and riveting

Evil Genius (TV): Ditto (this month was all about bizarre crime shows)

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Movie): Not mind-blowing, but enjoyable, and I liked the haunted house vibe of the second half

Bikram (Podcast): This guy was a real piece of work

The Break With Michelle Wolf (TV): She’s great, and gives off a very original vibe

Medium Playback (Podcast): Great authors reading their great Medium pieces

Succession (TV): A great backstabaganza

The Fourth Estate (TV): A riveting look behind the scenes at the The New York Times

Welcome to LA (Podcast): Amazing Los Angeles stories

Hobby Horse (Podcast): Interviews with well-known people about their lesser-known interests

The Handmaid’s Tale (TV): As bleak and great as ever

The RFK Tapes (Podcast): I wasn’t familar with RFK conspiracy theories, but as a JFK conspiracy junkie this series from some of the people behind Crimetown is right up my alley

I also went pretty hard at Spotify playlists this month, cranking out the following mixes:
