As much as I want to be the person who devours a reading list in a month flat (or less), my book intake of late has been waylaid by long work days and extended evening routines. At the end of most days I am finding that I want to collapse on the couch and be spoon-fed entertainment, sometimes while I am literally spoon-feeding myself cashew ice cream. Cliche' much?
One benefit of this is it has allowed me to explore some new-to-me series, podcasts and videos. I thought I would pass them on in case you also find yourself in a hectic season.
My friend Shelby Earl released a beautiful video for her equally beautiful song, Strong Swimmer. Here is what Shelby herself had to say about it the concept behind the video "Over the past couple of years, on tour and at home, I've met a number of young people in the midst of really painful gender identity (and in some cases mental health) struggles. And I've known for a while that if I ever made a video for my song "Strong Swimmer," I wanted it to be for them."

Thanks to a recent trip down the Super Soul Sunday rabbit hole, I discovered an interview with Dr. Shefali Tsabary, the author of The Conscious Parent. This episode gave me a lot of food for thought and I ordered the book immediately. I would love to hear if any of you have read her work and your thoughts on her parenting theories! Listen here.
I know it not for everyone, but I love a good true crime story and over the weekend I forwent typical series binging and watched only the first episode of Evil Genius. Netflix describes the show as "This baffling true crime story stars with the grisly death of a pizza man who robs a bank with a bomb around his neck - and gets weirder from there." The internet has since gone wild for the it and is comparing Evil Genious to the highly watched and controversial, Making of a Murder. Watch here.
