Saturday Links #7: Reading more, amazing podcasts, cancelled shows, and Richard Ayoade.

9:00 am

Working hard? Or hardly working? I'm not even sure myself. What I am sure of is that I have things to share with you, and those things are here. Ta da! (Also, Weekly Links has been rebranded as Saturday Links. I think it looks nicer)

  • Leo Babauta of Zen Habits shares his 'Delightfully Short Guide to Reading More Books'. I heartily agree with carrying a book around with you at all times. There are so many moments in the day, especially when out and about, that you find yourself doing nothing. These are the moments you could be reading!

  • NPR have a new podcast in their network called Invisibilia, and I am absolutely in love with it! Hosted by Alix Spiegel and Lulu Miller, the podcast talks about topics related to the theme of the invisible, with the first two episodes focusing on dark thoughts and fear. I'm hooked and have both laughed and cried out loud listening to it already.

  • In The Flesh, one of my favourite shows I've discovered over the past year, has been cancelled after two series. It's like The Hour all over again. Somebody hold me. It is such a unique take on the popular zombie theme of the past few years so it's a huge shame to see it go.

  • Still on the topic of television, here is why you should be watching the charmingly weird Rick And Morty.

  • Ella over at Ellalogy wrote this wonderful post inspired by Maggie Gyllenhaal's Golden Globes acceptance speech on 'real women' characters.

  • Regarding Sia's Elastic Heart video I was talking about in last week's Weekly Links, here's why we shouldn't be calling everything we see paedophilic when it isn't. 

Have you read/watched/relished anything you'd like to share this week? Leave me a comment below!
