Favorites List (10.17.14)

I've been waking up on the early side lately, and tend to do a bit of reading before the sun rises. Which means(!), I have a few things to share with you. Also, if any of you have any podcasts you're particularly excited about, give a shout in the comments. I'd love to add a few to my list...

- Reading this, and reading this.

- Watching this, and this.

- Honey hunters

- Armchair traveling: here, here, here, and here

- The Interpreter

- Find Your Beach

- Lotta + Oaxaca

- Rise & Shine

- The magic.

- To cook: Sprouted Rye Berries & Roasted Cauliflower & Vegetarian Pho

- The Head Scarf Tie (via Beth Kirby), also her kitchen...

- Calendula Oil

- We updated the shop this week, have a peek - new aprons, unusual culinary herbs, a beautiful soup pot, and the like.

That japanese tidying book looks great. Just looked through their table of contents... "storage experts are hoarders" YES!! Exactly. That's actually why I've been thinking that once I sell all the stuff I want to sell (or donate or throw away), I actually want to get RID of one of the closets in my room. More space to live, to move. Less space for material possessions. Valentina

HS: That's one of her arguments, and there's a lot to it. I'm not having much luck with the weeding it all out in one go, but I did take a good swipe at my closet, and books are next, then papers...


Nice picks, Heidi! I see most of my podcasts already recommended here, so thought I'd ask if you ever try books on tape. Recent favorites on Audible have included State of Wonder by Ann Patchett, read by Hope Davis; The Circle by Dave Eggers, read by the amazing Dion Graham; and Not My Father's Son, written and read by Alan Cumming.

Great picks. I've downloaded a few books from audible.com in the past...but I'm not in the habit of it compared to podcasting....something to look forward to :)


Gastropod is a new podcast about food, with a focus on history and science. It's lovely!


Great list full of inspiration! Also, I loved to read other reader's podcast suggestions. I just finished listening to Love Hurts by Strangers on KCRW - be sure to listen to all four episodes. It simply was so real and raw; loved it. I could get lost browsing through your Quitokeeto products... You always find the loveliest pieces!


I agree with so many of the podcast suggestions above, and was delighted to see another fan of Stitcher. I'll add Slate's Double X Podcast, NPR: Snap Judgement, Slate's Audio Book Club, Selected Shorts from PRI, APM: Garrison Keillor's The Writer's Almanac, Stuff You Missed in History Class, and Slate's Culture Gabfest. Love your blog, thank you.


Serial by This American Life for sure.


Another endorsement for Serial, but as the others said, you must start at the beginning. A spinoff of this American life.


Love + Radio, Death Sex and Money, The Gist (with Mike Pesca), Planet Money, Selected Shorts, Startup (with Alex Bloomberg), Serial (This American Live spinoff), and all the rest of the NPR usual suspects.


Delightful, as always, Heidi! Podcast favorites: Death, Sex, and Money (pretty new and especially amazing). The Splendid Table. The Dinner Party Download. Wait, wait, don't tell me! Xo.


I love that piece on what kids eat for breakfast... Like everyone else, i've been gobbling up the serial podcasts, but my favorite podcast of all time is Desert Island Discs -- there's a whole archive, if you haven't already heard of them! It's actually a british radio show that started in the 1940s(!!) where very interesting people people (e.g. Elton John, Fergus Henderson, etc.) share the 8 disks they would bring to a deserted island with them. I would definitely listen to the David Attenborough episode. I love listening to it while I cook, along with KCRW's Good Food. On Being is another one of my favorites! (John Donohue + Christian Wiman + Paulo Coelho are my favorite episodes) Hope you're well Heidi!


As a photojournalism student at the time this film is set in, The Bang Bang Club is a fascinating look at, not just the end of Apartheid in S. Africa, but the way photojournalists worked at the time. The film isn't the most perfectly crafted one but the story is compelling.


Great post - thanks Heidi! Edible Radio podcasts are now on iTunes as well as at www.edibleradio.com. Great interviews there by edible magazine publishers!

i too am listening to the serial podcast from this american life. i don't recommend before bed! and do start with the first episode. be warned: it's addictive.


What a delicately beautiful painted piece! Happy reading!


I second the Serial podcast! I've been looking forward to it every week. I also enjoy the Cracked podcasts (humor+ education) and TED radio from NPR. Also, the Stitcher app is great for podcast compiling/subscribing/listening.


Thank you for the lovely links...especially the one to 'The Interpreter'.

HS: Hope to see you around the neighborhood again soon Joytika. xo


I highly recommend the radio lab podcasts- they're funny, interesting, and totally engaging.


heidi, you are a special kind of brilliance. i love your blog and what you do! one of my absolute favorites to read and to learn from and the perfect accompaniment to my morning coffee :)


Have you listened to the Serial podcast from the "This American Life" folks? SO good. Check it out- http://serialpodcast.org Make sure you start at the first episode!


I loved The Sound of Things Falling. I heard the author interviewed on the CBC. If you have a chance to see or hear him, I recommend.

HS: Thanks for the heads up Anne - I look forward to listening to him after I finish.
