Saturday 14 November 2020 The Forest Road Reader, No 2.57 : Culture, innit

Here are some things I have enjoyed listening to or watching or reading over the past little while. If you enjoy the same kind of things I do, then you’ll probably enjoy them too.

Listening

The Last Post - Daily news podcast from an alternate dimension.

The Sky Machine - When cloud formation specialist David Forrester and oceanographer Susan Leistrammer meet at a conference, they trigger events that plunge them into a world they never imagined …​ Exciting story, beautifully made.

Blue Hearts - Bob Mould's energetic spiky new album.

Seeker! The Ken Campbell Podcast - I really only came to appreciate Ken Campbell and his work after his death. This podcast features a number of the solo shows he performed later in his career. Plugging them directly into your ears is a transformative experience.

Thirteen Minutes To The Moon - Astronauts are amazing people.

Reading

Gideon the Ninth - Gloomy gothic lesbian witch fun in space.

Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men - The dogs and cats of Burden Hill do their best to protect their neighbourhood from the supernatural events that threaten. Beasts of Burden might be the best horror comic published in the last, I don’t know, ages anyway. It’s terrific.

The Raven Tower - Nicely chewy story about a big stone.

The Spy Who Came In From The Cold - An absolute belter of a spy thriller.

2000AD - It calls itself the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic! and, you know what, that’s the absolute truth.

Watching

Picard - Thoroughly satisfying Star Trek revival.

Alias - J.J.Abrams' breathless double-crossing triple-crossing conspiracy-espionage action-adventure series is just as much ludicrous fun now as it was twenty years ago.

AEW Dynamite - I loves me some prowrestling, and AEW is delivering the wrestling I want to see right now. I’ve long been a fan of Eddie Kingston and the deep emotion he brings, and it’s been fantastic to see him take his place on a big stage with such confidence over the last few weeks.

Richard Osman’s House of Games - sometimes you just want something harmless, and this light, friendly, quiz-cum-gameshow is entirely harmless.
