We love to check in with you, our dearest Mary Suevians, to see what’s been consuming your attention as of late. What should we all be taking a look at?

We’re living in a golden age of television and an ever-expanding cinematic universe of superheroes, Jedi, and other spacefarers. Over in Bookville, there’s never been such an output of strong and diverse genre offerings, wide-ranging YA, and comic books that hold an increasingly realistic mirror up to what society really looks like. Video games are making exciting in-roads in terms of representation and are continually upping the ante on what’s possible in gameplay. There are so many incredible podcasts and new albums that I often wish I had extra ears.

The Mary Sue’s readers always keep us on our toes, and you all are often at the forefront of uncovering important media. We appreciate knowing what’s on your mind—this alerts us to the properties that we should be investigating on your behalf, as well provides what’s bound to be a wealth of things we’ll love to consume as well. You do, after all, have impeccable taste.

On our end, some of the media we’ve been obsessing over as of late:

Chelsea: Killing Eve (TV)

Princess: Circe by Madeline Miller (Book)

Charline: Keep It (Podcast)

Vivian: The Merry Spinster by Daniel Mallory Ortberg (Book)

Daniella: Hound Tall (Podcast)

Dan: The Good Place (TV)

Kaila: Last Podcast on the Left (Podcast)

What have you been consuming as of late that you can’t wait to talk about and share with others? Tell us in the comments! I may not have extra ears, but I can’t wait to see what’s caught your attention.
