    • Finance wisdom for the financially un-inclined
    • Money isn’t typically a subject that inspires laughter, or even pleasant conversation. In fact, according to outmoded rules about manners, we’re not even supposed to talk about it at all. But as anyone who remembers Jen Sincero’s likeably iconoclastic tone from You Are A Badass can guess, this isn’t a book about following the herd or fitting in. Here, Sincero beautifully demolishes widely held stigmas about money—that it’s the root of all evil, that rich people are deplorable by nature—and provides real, actionable advice on how to reset your mindset about monetary success.

    • A delight for book-loving parents and children alike
    • As a book-loving parent, I instinctively gravitate to anarchic 5-year-old Matilda – a girl who prefers Steinbeck to screens, and is as mischievous as she is precociously in love with the written word. Roughly a billion words have been written on how to raise a happy child, but so few on how to raise a spunky bibliophile — and even fewer via the inimitable, shape-shifting voice of Kate Winslet, who fully embodies the villains and heroes in this Roald Dahl classic.

    • Excellent, chilling work brought to life with impeccable narration
    • An important work by any measure, Colson Whitehead’s take on the titular slave-escape route is delivered in unvarnished language that lays bare the heinousness of that darkest moment in our history. Bahni Turpin’s narration is at once chilling and subtly evocative as she shifts from slave to brutal slave owner; from depictions of harsh assaults to fleeting, beautiful moments of hope. It’s a listen that’s forever changed my perception of an ugly time I’d previously known primarily from matter-of-fact textbook accounts.

    • Explore the unexpected effects of a dark side of the internet
    • If you love exploring the fringes of society, you’ll want to binge Audible’s original podcast, The Butterfly Effect. Best-sellling writer Jon Ronson (Them, So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed) explores the consequences of the tech industry giving the world what it wanted: free porn. Lives were mangled. Fortunes were made. “It’s a mystery story, an adventure,” Ronson told Audible. “It’s also a new way of telling a story.” From a drab office in Montreal to the adult-filmmaking hub in the San Fernando Valley, Ronson talks to people who have made their living in the business of pleasure – and how that all changed when the internet stepped in. And, hear about the increasingly problematic consequences of that disruption.
