2 things to listen to

The podcast "Storytime with Seth Rogen" from the Canadian actor-director features great storytelling.

If I were doing a “best podcasts of 2021” list, this one would absolutely need to be on it.

“Storytime With Seth Rogen” is based upon the property that everybody has an insane story to inform — and who much better to assist inform it than Rogen?

The star strives at it, which appears in the fantastic stories that have actually been included, like the story of a male who combated a grizzly bear and lived to inform the tale.

The Earwolf Podcast Network job can be discovered where podcasts are offered.

Former first lady Michelle Obama dives deep into conversations with loved ones in 10 podcast episodes. We want 10 more, please.

I’m including this one in the hopes that we get a brand-new episode quickly.

The episodes of Michelle Obama’s podcast were launched sporadically, and the last one came out in April.

However what we do have are deep-dive discussions with individuals in her lives that are gold.

We understand you are hectic, Mrs. Obama, however a go back to the podcast would be a terrific Christmas present.

‘Tis the season for vacation motion pictures.

Whether it’s Trademark or Netflix, there is practically something for everybody in regards to material for this time of the year.

However how about we punch it up a bit?

CNN’s Sandra Gonzalez had the fantastic concept to do a bingo video game to go along with the Christmas motion pictures.

So play away!

Something to drink on

Issa Rae is shown in a scene from season five of "Insecure."

I can’t let “Insecure” end without sharing a homage.

The HBO series, starring and developed by Issa Rae, has actually suggested a good deal to Black females for its sensible representation of relationships, love and life.

I have actually been riding with Rae considering that I initially came across her skill a years earlier by means of her YouTube series, “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.”
She in fact was the very first visitor I ever had on my previous CNN video series “Lisa’s Desk” and was thoughtful adequate to let me attend a session of the “Insecure” authors’ space.

Now, after 5 seasons, the series is ending Sunday, and I am going to miss it. And while there has actually been a good deal of interest in who Rae might or might not wind up with romantically in the series, for me, her real enjoys will constantly stay her closest pals — Molly, Kelli and Tiffany.
