Looking for something new to watch, but sick of all the mainstream stuff? I’ve curated a bunch of shows here which I’ve enjoyed over the years.

Some of these are foreign, non-English TV shows. Some of them you may definitely have heard of as cult classics. Some of them are just downright weird, which is the kind of stuff I like — I want stories to take risks, push boundaries, and do something new — I feel like I’ve seen every iteration of every mystery show that exists at this point.

Welcome to My Favourite Things! It’s pretty self-explanatory really. This time, podcasts!

Never listened to a podcast before? Oh my god, your life is about to get so much better. Chores are a lot less boring when you have something interesting to listen to, and I will literally go for walks or drives purely so that I can listen to the next episode of a podcast in peace.

This post is part two of a multi-part story. If you haven’t read the first part, start here. From here on out, the assumption is that you’ve read the story of my first visit to Sleep No More in 2016.

Ever since I got back from my trip to New York the most common question has always been “what was the best part?”

I can say, without any shred of doubt, that the best part of my trip was my — for lack of a better word — “experience” at Sleep No More.
