The Rabbit Hole #004: Walk It Off
Hi Story Made aficionados, welcome to The Rabbit Hole, The blog series that slowly migrates its release schedule across the weekend and shares my favorite stuff I stumbled across on the internet that week. Here we go:
How TikTok Became a Best Seller Machine (The New York Times)
The kids are reading, and sharing books with their followers. Maybe all is not lost.
What Becoming a Parent Really Does to Your Happiness (The Atlantic)
Can confirm, becoming a parent doesn't exactly make you happier. But happiness isn't everything, and it also isn't purpose. I've added a few books to my TBR from this article.
Otherppl podcast with Brad Listi: Austin Kleon
This was a great conversation about creativity and books and so many other things. I take a lot of influence from Austin Kleon. TRH is directly modeled off his fantastic newsletter, which you should definitely be subscribed to.
Walk It Off with Isaac Fitzgerald
Another fantastic newsletter. In each issue, Isaac goes on a walk with a creator or writer of some sort (often women) and transcribes their conversation. I've only read a few but it's a new favorite. The latest is a walk with comics artist Leslie Stein.
12 Books That Changed How I Hear Music (The Honest Broker)
And none of them are about music! Got this one from the aforementioned Austin Kleon newsletter. A lot of these books sound on the academic side and seem like things I don't ever want to read...but hearing how they have changed the way Ted Gioia listens to music is fascinating and illuminating.
Thanks for reading! I hope you found something interesting.
