A new podcast from NPR. How I Built This is about innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. Each episode is a narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, serendipity and insight — told by the founders of some of the world’s best-known companies and brands. Episode 1 was with Sara Blakely (creator of Spanx) and episode 2 was with the guys that started Instagram. I thoroughly enjoyed them both. At under 30 minutes each, it’s a good listening choice when on your way to work. Think of it as a morning motivator. Get it here.
Funny, dark, honest and original. You’re The Worst is a comedy series from Stephen Falk that takes a modern look at love and happiness through two people who haven’t been successful with either. It follows Jimmy (Chris Geere), a self-involved writer, and Gretchen (Aya Cash), a self-destructive Los Angeles PR executive, as these two toxic personalities attempt a relationship. It premiered around 2 years ago on FX with season 3 out last month. I’m halfway through season 1 and have heard it gets better and better. Watch the trailer here. Get it on iTunes (unless you can view it free on FX in the USA).
Not many people have the time or patience to make gnocchi from scratch but this one you can proudly say you made yourself and it will only set you back around 30 minutes beginning to end including cooking time. And it feels lighter on your stomach than traditional gnocchi. It’s a recipe from SMH Good Food (Caroline Velik) many years ago and is a crowd pleaser including vegetarians and children.
You will need:
500g fresh ricotta (Note: if you can only get your hands on soft/packaged ricotta I recommend draining for 30 min)
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus a little extra to serve
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
1 cup plain flour, plus extra if required
1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 punnets cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 cup basil leaves, torn
A documentary following Anthony Weiner and the sexting scandals he’s now infamous for that subsequently collapsed his personal and political worlds, starting from his time in Congress through to his campaign for Mayor of New York City. I was captivated by this film for many reasons: (1) How anyone would want to have a documentary crew follow them around given the circumstances (he confesses later in the film that his intention was for some version of the truth to be told); (2) His stunning and impeccably dressed wife, Huma Abedin (Hillary Clinton’s right hand lady), and the way she dealt with his indiscretions; (3) His relentless drive and energy that kept him on the campaign trail despite the full on drama that was happening in every part of his life and (4) His name and wondering whether this would ever have become such a huge story and source of entertainment had he been fortunate enough to have a different surname (probably not). It’s cringeworthy but highly entertaining. View the trailer here or watch it on iTunes.
