Palak Patel

      1. #FreeBritney Movement
      2. Great Circle by Maggie Shipstead
      3. Mare of Easttown–love a good murder mystery
      4. Red (Taylor’s Version) – I’ve had All Too Well on repeat.
      5. Chris Harrison leaving The Bachelor.

Kelly Caputo

      1. Renegades: Born in the USA, because Bruce Springsteen and Barack Obama are two of my favorite humans, and have two incredible stories.
      2. Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I think she’s one of the best contemporary writers, and she never fails to deliver a great cast of characters!
      3. WandaVision might be one of my favorite TV shows ever! It was flawless.
      4. Hamilton – the first show I was able to see after Broadway (finally) reopened, and I was willing to wait for it! 
      5. Oasis Knebworth 1996 documentary, because everyone knew my list wouldn’t be complete without this.

Erica Kerman

      1. The Avett Brothers at Red Rocks Denver – first time there and it lived up to the hype!
      2. Hot Honey Sundays weekly outdoor dance party @ Greenpoint Terminal Market in Brooklyn!
      3. The White Lotus (HBO) – love to hate.
      4. Bleachers: Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night
      5. Jayaram’s pets-on-parade Slack channel


Michelle Butler

      1. Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain – incredible documentary that leaves you thinking
      2. The Head and the Heart’s Instagram sneak peak of a song on their upcoming album
      3. The All-Night Sun by Diane Zinna – love a good novel that hits you in the feels!
      4. Photobook montage I found in an Airbnb dedicated to the owner’s late puppy—I was crying halfway through
      5. Mare of Easttown!!!


Joshua Herrington

      1. Succession. Hands down. Class is over. Siobhan for the win.
      2. The U.S. premiere of the enchanting performance of Sun & Sea, which won the coveted Golden Lion at the 2019 Venice Bienale. Simply breathtaking!
      3. Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss sending surrealist sculpture down the runway at Madame C.J. Walker’s iconic estate, and being the first Black designer to show at Paris Couture Week. A celebration of Black excellence!
      4. The Greedy Peasant account on Instagram. If you’re into cheeky, punny medieval art history jokes, then this one’s for you!
      5. Watching Simone slay the competition every week on Ru Paul’s Drag Race was a delight! I couldn’t wait to tune in. Every detail was impeccable and every concept delivered.
