Weekend Whats

What to Book: When it comes to the big topics that really impact people, The Center for Investigative Reporting’s Aaron Glantz is one of America’s smartest and most dedicated researchers. His latest book is a testament to that dedication. Excellent and eye-opening stuff. Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks, and Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream. (You can hear Glantz discuss the book on Reveal’s always must-listen podcast.)

+ What to Pod: The latest season of Slate’s excellent podcast, Slow Burn, covers a very different topic (and a very different Tupac). Biggie and Tupac. And if you missed Slow Burn’s look at Watergate, don’t. It’s the perfect time to get a behind the scenes look at Watergate as we enter the age of Ukraine-gate, and everything-else-gate.

+ What to Hear: A couple years ago, I told you about new artist who I saw open at the Fillmore in SF. Her performance overshadowed the headliner and she’s been getting bigger and bigger ever since. Listen to Bishop Briggs’ latest album Champion and you’ll hear why.
