Each week I share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
1. Mafia Podcast
If you enjoyed Crimetown you’re likely to enjoy the Mafia podcast as well. If you never listened to Crimetown, well, now you have two excellent options. Mafia has more of a documentary/history feel to it and less of a rollicking storytelling aspect, but it is so well done. Each episode tells the story of one of the most significant mobsters in U.S. history. They don’t get bogged down in mundane details and neither do they sensationalize. The stories themselves, told by a narrator and plenty of historian and first-hand input, are sensational enough. I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast.
While I might wish I could always write or work at a coffee shop, sadly time and money do not allow. Thankfully, Coffitivity allows the coffee shop – at least a little of it – to come to me. I hate writing or working in total silence; it makes me feel claustrophobic. What Coffitivity does is to pipe in the steady drone of a pleasant coffee shop sound – a hum of voices, the clinking of glasses, the door opening and shutting. And to top it off you can play music right over the top of it, giving what once was an oppressively quiet work environment the feel of a cafe with a live band. Except you control the volume.
3. Gary Sheffield’s Swing
He wasn’t my favorite player growing ip, but he was my favorite player to watch hit. The stance, the bat twitch, the superhuman bat speed. Nobody swung a bat like Gary Sheffield. I just wish they’d skipped the fielding “highlights” in this video; Gary preferred to skip all the fielding too. Happy Opening Day Everyone!
