Links: Wholesome Content, Podcasts, & More

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Welcome back, Wednesday friends! Tonight is the VP debate and while I have high hopes it’ll go better than the presidential debate, it’s also still 2020. Who knows what sort of trash fire can occur?!

October is officially under way and I’m here for it. I celebrate, I’m making rice krispie treats.

Tor has some recommendations for sci-fi and fantasy novels that center mental health.

I love this ranking of paintings of Judith Beheading Holofernes. I personally disagree with the earlier spots on the ranking, but it was also an excuse to look at some cathartic artwork. Which one gets your number one spot?

Need a new podcast in your life? I’ve been loving Nightlight, which is a Black horror podcast. The horror genre can be a particularly white space and I love discovering new-to-me voices.

If you’re as excited as we are about the release of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, Frolic has put together a reading playlist!

For some wholesome, feel-good content, watch comedian Jo Firestone learn how to cook summer chowder with her grandmother:


Don’t forget to share what super cool things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

    Thank you for the paintings link. The article is a delight, even if I can’t speak to their rankings. This is true class-intersectional feminism. We are at our best when, together, we put some real muscle into beheading invading colonizers.

    The #notallmen paragraph killed me. Paraphrasing: Please unpack that in your head and not our DMs which we’re going to ignore anyway.

    Artemisia’s is the only painting that considered the physicality of a beheading. All the others were unwilling to show the women less than perfectly coifed. Which what does that say about the patriarchy?

  3. DiscoDollyDeb says:

    Also check out paintings of Jael driving a tent peg through Sisera’s head for some visceral catharsis!

    Love the Judith paintings. Of course Artemisia is the best, but I really have a soft spot for that weird cartoon serpent creature one. It just…makes no sense. In a fun way.

    I loved the chowder video, it is so sweet! I’ve made corn chowder before, but never put in the cobs, that is a great idea. Thanks Grandma for the tip!

    Have you seen this years candidates for the Comedy Lifetime Awards?

    I’ve probably seen those painting rankings 3 or 4 times in the past few years, but I never get sick of reading it again. Artemesia’s is rightfully #1, and I got to see it in person when the Met in New York did a show of her work some years ago.
    Thanks for the summer chowder too. I like to make mine with leftover grilled corn on the cob.
    And if you want to see more grandma cooking, AngiesHomeCooking is an Italian-American cook, I love her New Jersey Italian accent and her down-home cooking style.
