Issue #165 – Down The Rabbit Hole
Here’s what’s going on this week. GP has joined seven mother-son pairs for a service mission trip with buildON to build a primary school in Senegal. Their organization has built 115 schools around the globe with over 13,000 students attending. AP is (slowly) en route to Tahoe for fresh powder and lots of board games by the fire. We’ll be back next week with a fresh list and a new episode of our TW V. Cast (video podcast). In the meantime, stay safe and stay cozy.

100% Editorial picks. No pay for play. Ever.
The Border by Don Winslow is the much anticipated finale to the celebrated trilogy about the Mexican drug wars that began with The Cartel followed by Power of the Dog. If you’re intrigued by the show Narcos, Pablo Escobar, or the Sinaloa drug cartel, this trilogy is not to be missed.
We’ve had Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn on our read and watch list for the past year but Gina just binge watched six episodes on a transatlantic flights this weekend. Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson are absolutely superb in the darkly surreal suspense series set in a small town with big personalities. Eerie, disturbing, addictive.
When you can’t decide between a proper cocktail or a glass of wine, the New York Sour delivers a tart, toasty and boozy blend of whiskey and red wine. An oddball alternative to traditional cold-weather cocktails and yet totally classic.
We love the wisdom and support that bubbles up from The What Women, our private Fb community and with thousands of conversations happening around health, parenting, sex, career and more, there’s something for everyone. Here’s a fascinating conversation around the benefits of CBD for managing and relieving the joys of menopause.
When was the last time you were bored out of your mind and didn’t reach for your phone? This New York Times Op-Ed piece, Let Children Be Bored Again, explores the power of boredom to spawn creativity and self-sufficiency in children today. We argue that this is just as relevant for adults who have lost the ability to sit quietly and let their mind wander long enough to get curious and tap into a ready imagination. Give it a try. Go down the rabbit hole and see what awaits.
