A few books, blogs, podcasts, playlists and mixtapes that I’m into right now.

Reading

I like reading.

I also like collating things to read.

There are a few piles of books in my apartment, a list of books on a Trello board, clippings from articles, transcripts from videos, blog posts to review.

I recently collated my reading list into a handy Airtable base. It’s embedded below, and you can also access it here.

I’ll update this list as I make further progress, and add some blog posts and other interesting snippets too.

Listening

When I was 8 years old I bought my first album – The Greatest Hits of 1990 compilation.

It was a double cassette as we didn’t have a CD player at home.

I was exposed to such wonders as Adamski, The Adventures of Stevie V and 808 State (alongside Jason Donovan and Bros of course), and would constantly play, rewind, play, rewind.

At the time I had no idea what these crazy sounds were, but I liked them.

Fast forward 25 years or so and I’ve since spent time working in a record store, promoting events, DJ’ing, and representing musicians as a talent agent.

It’s pretty safe to say music is a big part of my life, and more recently podcasts have been too.

Here are a few things I’m listening to right now. Enjoy.

(this reminds me of a wonderful trip to Brazil back in 2011)
