Mystery Show Podcast

Hannah says: Mystery Show is a podcast produced by Gimlet and hosted by Starlee Kine, who you may know from This American Life. As the name suggests, Starlee goes around solving mysteries that can’t be solved by using the internet. Britney Spears was holding the book written by a friend. Did she actually read it? What did she think? Who is this guy whose name is on the belt buckle found in a gutter 20 years ago? What happened to the video rental place that closed down suddenly? Each episode is filled with good old fashioned sleuthing; long phone calls with friends of friends, trips to culinary board meetings and meet and greet lines in Las Vegas.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Hannah: I hate it and I love it and I hate it. Having the opportunity to dive back into Harry’s world is exciting. Letting someone other than JK Rowling take the reins is unsettling.

Proma says: The eighth story that is a play that will be a book and I’m excited in a terrified way. But I was happy with seven.

Olivia: Nobody talk to me on July 31st. Wait.

Gilmore Girls

Proma says: THERE IS GOING TO BE A NETFLIX REVIVAL AND EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE THERE and who could attend the reunion of a lifetime without a trip down memory lane? I’m a diehard Jess fan, so my rewatch consists only of Jess episodes, which begin with Season 2. I honestly thought this show would affect me less as an adult, that I could watch objectively and critically, but no – I am more palpably flustered by Jess and Rory and Lorelai and Christopher (Season 2 is pre-Luke) and Paris and Jamie (the Princeton man!) than ever.

WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO SAY

Remembrance/The Mediator nostalgia

Proma says: When I was 14, I fell in love with a fictitious ghost from the 1850s, and though more than 10 years have passed, nothing has changed. The first adult installation of Meg Cabot’s Mediator series came out TK years after what high school Proma thought was the final book, and Remembrance has drudged up long dormant feels, particularly my admiration for Suze Simon’s ability to kick paranormal ass while wearing sexy boots.

Dear Hank and John

Proma says: I’ve done a terrible job of keeping up with YouTube over the past few years. Dear Hank and John is everything I love about Vlogbrothers, and the podcast form works brilliantly – especially for the busy young twenty-something, living life on-the-go! Jokes, discussion, and something I’ve really missed: Learning . Dear Hank and John: Thanks.

Sixty-Four Webcomic

Olivia says: Are you ready for this? Sixty-four is a weekly updated webcomic about the exploits of a teenage runaway, a lunatic royal family, and a drug cartel within two societies locked in a holy war. It’s a ride. It’s gorgeous. And I’m obsessed with it . Nika Alexandra ’s style surpasses ‘stunning’ and lands somewhere out-of-this-world into “gorgeous my eyes are not worth of this art” territory. Nika also screen prints her art onto t-shirts.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Proma says: I watch a lot of TV. A lot . But the reason I do it is to find shows like this, shows that are so incredibly smart and funny and entertaining and make me feel bettered for watching them. Rachel Bloom is fantastic, as is her entire cast and every bizarre and witty musical number. The Feb. 8 episode (“That Text Was Not Meant For Josh!”) was particularly amazing, with some truly sad and serious moments and a quality storyline for Paula. Basically, watch this show.
