Binge for summer.

 

We talked as a team and picked the best of what we like for a bunch of different reasons. So here’s three must-binge TV series, some brilliant podcasts and cracking books. Get stuck in.

Three MUST BINGE TV SHOWS.

WHAT: Sharp Objects.
WHERE:
Neon.
WHY? Everyone loves a psychological thriller with a serious alcoholic and a twist.  

WHAT: Unreal.
WHERE: Lightbox.
WHY? A dramedy about reality without a moment’s thought for politically correct.

WHAT: The Nanny & Full House.
WHERE: Netflix.
WHY? Still family-friendly post-news laughs a couple of decades later.

Three MUST BINGE BOOKS.

WHAT: Still Me.
WHO:
Jojo Moyes.
WHY? Because it’s the sequel to Me Before You. Enough said.

WHAT: Too Much and Not in the Mood.
WHO: Durga Chew-Bose.
WHY? It has some of the best personal essays ever written.

WHAT: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.
WHO: Mark Manson.
WHY? Searching for your why? We like the confronting nature of this self-help book.

Three MUST BINGE PODCASTS.

WHAT: Business Wars.
WHO:
Wondery.
WHY? Netflix vs HBO. Nike vs Adidas. Business battles that are too good not to hear.

WHAT: Girls on top.
WHO:
NZME.
WHY? Three sassy women telling it like it is. Even the boys are a fan.

WHAT: Serial.
WHO: This American Life.
WHY? Nothing like a crime thriller on a road trip. But maybe not with the kids in the car.
