Einstein – Walter Isacson

An interesting book by the same author of the Steve Job’s Biography “Jobs”. I’m not much of a science person, but this is a great chance to learn just who Einstein was and what drove him to reach such incredible heights.

Isacson is a pretty amazing writer too and despite its controversy, I’d also recommend the Jobs book 100 percent.

Too Many Zooz

Great funk bank that apparently still busks in the New York subways, heaps of fun and a great pick me up in times when I’m ready to put a brick through my computer.

Also has made me add “learn trumpet” to my bucket list.

Westworld

If you haven’t heard of this show yet then you must have been living under a rock for the last 3 months.

Robots + Cowboys = take my money.

Shop Talk Show

Dave Rupert and Chris Coyer talk
everything about web development, a ton of the stuff can go straight over your head, but it can still be a great podcast to pick up an interesting tidbit or two whilst trying to climb the mountain of learning code.

Freakonomics

Freakonomics – Steven Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

This book is a really interesting read that gives you a different perspective on the world and what’s going around you. Their answer to the reasons behind the drop in crime in the USA still feels ridiculous to me.

Tourist – U

This seems to by my go to music when trying to figure out JavaScript. Tourist is music that manages to relax and invigorate you at the same time.

 

 

Bloodline

Bloodline

Defines the term ‘slow burn’, but crazy good acting and a super gritty storyline keeps you on-board and clamouring for answers. Ben Mendleson is the GOAT.

Doughboys

Two comedians that review fast food restaurants in the USA. Thanks to these guys I’m this close to selling everything I own, moving to the USA and living the short, yet enjoyable dream of hyper-obesity.
