Weekend Open Thread: What Are You Watching/Reading/Listening to/Playing Right Now?

Recommended Videos

We’re never short on entertainment material around here. It feels like our To Watch/Read list is always insurmountably long. But we figured, going into this weekend, why not throw some more recommendations onto the pile? We want to hear what you all are reading/watching/listening to/whatever else right now.

Here’s my current list to start things off:

  • Watching: I just did a full re-watch of Playing House through Amazon Prime this week. It’s still one of the best depictions of female friendship on television ever.
  • Reading: I’m slowly making my way through Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Carline Criado Perez. This book is fascinating and infuriating. It’s about how nearly every aspect of modern life that was designed to be universally accessible was actually designed using data for and from men, with the expectation that everything would work equally well for women. Spoiler: It doesn’t.
  • Playing: I’m between video games right now! I need recommendations!
  • Listening: I’m taking a break from my usual nonstop political podcasts and lightening things up with discussions of murder, courtesy of the women of Crime Junkie. On the music side, I can’t stop listening to Billie Eilish.

What are you all into right now? Let us know in the comments!
