At The Sunday Paper, we often discover books, podcasts, films, and other works that move the needle and spark inspiring change. As we revel in taking a slight pause this August, we've rounded up some of our favorite suggestions from past issues. We hope these open your heart and mind and encourage you to come together for meaningful conversations.

What We're Watching

Whether you're looking to chuckle, learn more about football (soccer, that is!) or cry, Ted Lasso delivers all the good stuff. We're watching that series on repeat, as well as The Staircase, the riveting Max drama based on a convoluted murder investigation. (Hint: It stars a Sunday Paper favorite!)

What We're Listening To

Of course we have some of our favorite books (see below) beach- and lake-side this summer, but we're also reveling in the sun with stellar podcasts in our ears. Sharon McMahon's Here's Where It Gets Interesting tells untold and critical stories in and about America. And TV host and journalist Danielle Robay's Pretty Smart begs us to challenge old societal stories around beauty, power, age, and more.

What We're Reading

This year has proven epic in terms of the novels and non-fiction books that have come forth. Two of the most stunning-to-date include Ann Napolitano's Hello Beautiful, a sweeping story of tragedy, family, and love, and our friend Rainn Wilson's Soul Boom. Be sure to catch our conversation with Wilson here if you haven't yet!
