WATCH

Let Me Tell You What I Mean by Joan Didion

This new collection of previously published essays all written between 1968 and 2000 launches today and touches on everything from getting rejected by Stanford to pre-prison Martha Stewart to writing.

How to Prepare for Climate Change: A Practical Guide to Surviving the Chaos by David Pogue

Is a global pandemic not enough daily dread for you? Then you’re going to love this new book. It’s an unsettling disaster guide to the end of the world via a climate worst-case-scenario. 

LISTEN

Meeting Tom Cruise

Hosts Jeff Meacham (Blackish) and Joel Johnstone (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) really love Tom Cruise, but they’ve never met him. So they’re interviewing everyone who has, to hear their story about what it was like meeting Tom Cruise. Does the king of Scientology have something on them? Will they have Nicole Kidman on to speak about her iconic post-divorce paparazzi pictures? I’d like a whole podcast about that, please. That’s likely not going to be covered, so maybe give it a miss, unless you’re interested in gushing stories about the celebrity face of an abusive cult religion that was created by a man who wrote more science fiction than anyone else on Earth.

No F*cks Given 

New York Times bestselling author Sarah Knight, has brought the message of The Life Changing Magic Of Not Giving a F*ck to the podcast world. She’ll talk motivation, mental health, organisation, confidence, anxiety and more. Her first episode is out today and covers mental decluttering, budgets and eliminating guilt to improve your daily life.
