Have you listened to the sensational podcast "Serial"? I am totally addicted; this week I marathoned all 8 episodes within 24 hours. "Serial" investigates a case from the 90s in which high school student Adnan Syed was charged with the murder of his classmate and ex-girlfriend. The podcast's co-creator and narrator Sarah Koenig examines the ambiguous evidence that led to Syed's eventual conviction, interviewing Syed himself and many other individuals involved in the case. It's so captivating that I find myself deliberating the events at random points throughout the day. Luckily I'm not the only one: there's an entire Reddit forum dedicated to the case (spoiler alert).
I've added some of these nonfiction books to my reading list.

If you've always wanted to learn calligraphy, I highly recommend Molly Jacques' course on Skillshare. I've been following along and practicing sporadically, and it's so therapeutic! As per Molly's recommendation, I ordered my supplies from Paper & Ink Arts.
