today we’re talking series and podcasts I loved in April.
S-Town is the podcast everyone has been raving about in the last few weeks. I have checked it out upon the recommendation of a colleague and oh boy it was awesome! Produced by the producers of Serial and hosted by Brian Reed, S-Town is a 7 episode-investigative podcast that was made over three years. Everything started in 2012, when John B. McLemore, a horologist from Woodstock, Alabama, emailed the staff of This American Life to ask them to investigate a murder having allegedly taken place in Woodstock and been covered by the local police.
The Arab of the Future is a series of graphic memoirs published by French cartoonist Riad Sattouf. I have just read the first volume (in French, as you can see in the picture, obviously!), A Childhood in the Middle East, 1978-1984, and really enjoyed it.
Today I would like to share with you the covers of the beautiful Vintage Russian Classics Series. This series consists of 6 Russian classics’ new editions, which were published in January 2017 by Vintage (for the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution).
These bold and beautiful covers were designed by Suzanne Dean, Creative Director at Vintage.
I liked plenty of things in March so it was high time for my March Favourites post!
Freaks and Geeks (TV Series)
Freaks and Geeks is an amazing comedy-drama TV show from the nineties that I have only recently discovered. It is incredibly funny while also tackling a few ‘serious’ issues.
I have just come back from a 4 days trip to Copenhagen and I feel like telling you a bit about this wonderful city. This post is going to be in-between travel diary and city guide, and I hope it will make you feel like visiting Copenhagen and give you some useful tips and info if you’re planning to visit this city in the near future.
Staying in Copenhagen
The first thing I need to warn you about is how expensive this city is. If you are on a budget, Copenhagen is not the destination to go for. Apart from that, people in Copenhagen are quite welcoming and speak an amazing english so you will not be in any trouble to communicate with them.
Today I would like to tell you about one of the most heart-breaking and interesting books I have recently read: Another Day In The Death Of America by Gary Younge. I apologize in advance as, once again, I am reviewing one of the least cheerful non fiction books ever published…
