Chat 10 Looks 3 is a podcast in which Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales talk about books, television, radio, movies, food, politics and whatever else they feel like. It’s an unrehearsed, casual chat and I love the banter between these two friends. They’ve just released their Christmas special episode which is great if you’re looking for some reading, viewing or eating recommendations these holidays. I can vouch for two books I’ve read on their list this year: Commonwealth by Ann Patchett and Our Souls At Night by Kent Haruf. If you can’t spare the 1 hour 40 minute listen, go straight to their list of recommendations. Listen to the podcast.
A 15-minute weekly show hosted by Leigh Sales and Annabel Crabb where they discuss culture for the chronically time poor. Described by the ABC as “an occasionally shambolic conversation about books, movies, TV shows, cooking and other cultural obsessions.” Each episode is shot around Sydney whilst they’re chatting over something delicious and they never take themselves too seriously. It’s only available to watch on ABC iView. The pair also have a podcast of a similar nature Chat 10 Looks 3.
