What’s on tonight: Thursday, February 4

A new children’s podcast teaching kids about race and equality through storytelling, Joan Didion’s latest book of essays, and a thrilling new Sky Original show. Here’s what’s on tonight.

READ
Let Me Tell You What I Mean by Joan Didion 

In a collection of 12 essays that have been printed but never anthologised, this book from Joan Didion bridges everything from a 2000 profile on Martha Stewart and a 1990s tribute to Ernest Hemingway, to Didion’s own development as a writer.

One of the most stunning writers of our generation, this collection proves the timelessness of her words, with pieces dating from the 1970s up to the 2000s.

 

Open Water by Caleb Azumah Nelson

One of the most anticipated debuts of the spring book launch season, Open Season is a tender and beautiful look at race, romance and masculinity in modern-day London, when two Britsh Black artists struggle in a city that simultaneously celebrates and destroys them.

Open Water has been compared to Normal People as an unfiltered portrayal of modern love and promised to be un-put-downable. It lands on shelves today.

LISTEN
Imagine Equity

From the team who brought us children’s podcast The Imagine Neighborhood, this is a six-episode series that focuses on teaching kids about race, equity, diversity and standing up against injustice.

The first episode is out now where Scotty and Vac are pirate-sitting the Fire Pirates while Captain Marion is off at the dentist. Everything is shipshape… until Burn Voyage is attacked by the troublesome Captain Deen. It’s a fun and informative way to keep the little one occupied while also shaping the world around them and how they see it. You can listen here or wherever you get your podcasts.

WATCH
ZeroZeroZero, 9pm Sky Atlantic


If you were into Narcos and The Sopranos, you’re going to enjoy this new Sky Original show starring Gabriel Byrne. 

Based on the novel by Roberto Saviano, it’s a thrilling and fast-paced mini-series that follows the buyers, sellers and brokers who drive the frenzied and lethal world of international drug trafficking. The first episode airs tonight at 9pm.
