Stuck for ideas for how to spend your evening? Let us give you some inspiration


Have no plans for this evening? Same.

If you feel like you’ve already reached the end of Netflix and can’t bear the thought of trawling through the channels while avoiding all US and Brexit news, or simply don’t want to look at a screen at all, here are our picks for podcasts, books, TV and films to watch, stream, listen to and read this evening. Take a walk around New York with Martin Scorsese and Fran Lebowitz, delve into the Internet’s darkest corners of catfishing or get lost in a new story of queer Black love.

WATCH

Pretend It’s a City, Netflix

In this seven-part Netflix original documentary, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorcese discusses life and New York with the author (and his friend) Fran Lebowitz.

Dickinson, Apple TV+

The anachronistic comedy period drama Dickinson returns for a second series on Apple TV+ with Hailee Steinfeld reprising her role as the American poet Emily Dickinson, though the series is socially distanced from the truth of Emily Dickinson’s life.

LISTEN

Catfish: The Podcast

Dating deception from the Internet’s darkest corners is now available in podcast form. The audio is recycled from the TV series, but the stories remain grimly captivating.

READ

The Prophets by Robert Jones Jr. (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, Jan. 5)

Robert Jones Jr’s debut novel is tale of queer Black love between two enslaved men set on a plantation in Civil War-era Mississippi.

Speak your Truth by Fearne Cotton

Released yesterday, Speak Your Truth is Fearne Cotton’s latest book. This time, she wants you to make noise, to say “no” more, to speak out and to stop staying silent when you have noise to make.
