Weekend Whats

What to Book: “A binge-read of a book, propelled, for the most part, by a clear, adrenaline-spiking ticktock of how their stories came together, and studded with all manner of new astonishing details.” The LA Times is right in that description of She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement. But the book by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey isn’t just about Harvey Weinstein and the MeToo movement. It’s about the power of investigative journalism.

+ What to Watch: Speaking of the power of investigative journalism, the Netflix series Unbelievable is based on reporting from ProPublica. Toni Collette and Merritt Wever are excellent in this hunt for a serial rapist, and stark look at the way victims are treated.

+ What to Polypodiophyta: Between Two Ferns, the movie. Galifianakis. Enough said.
