The MashReads Podcast is back in 2018!

This week on the MashReads Podcast, we reunite in the new year and talk about what we read, watched, played, etc. over the holiday, including the movies Phantom Thread, I, Tonya, The Shape of Water, and Call Me By Your Name; the book Autumn by Karl Ove Knausgaard; and the Nintendo Switch games Stardew Valley and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Then we move on and discuss our reading goals for 2018.

And, as always, we close the show with recommendations:

  • Martha recommends watching Lovesick, Season 3, on Netflix. “It’s a beautiful story of friendship and love. And it’s just so good. The acting is fantastic. I’m just the biggest fan of this.” Martha has also been working on a movie project: “I have been watching every Jake Gyllenhaal movie ever.”
  • Peter recommends a bunch of movies including The Square. “It has one of the most intense scenes that I’ve experienced all year, and that’s incredible in a year where mother! came out.”
  • MJ recommends DJ Detweiler’s remix of Miley Cyrus’ song “Wrecking Ball,”  (h/t Mashable’s senior editor Foster Kamer). “It takes this song and makes it even more absurd, and it just keeps building. The more you listen to it, the funnier it gets.”
  • This weird trend where people make music out of other people talking.
  • Sam Anderson’s “New Sentences” New York Times Magazine column explaining the beauty of a line from Autumn by Karl Ove Knausgaad.

Next, we’re talking about Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. We hope you’ll join us.
