DAISY JONES AND THE SIX

Ballantine Books

Taylor Jenkins Reid

When an iconic band comes together and then splits, everyone wants to know what were the reasons behind it - especially when it happens at the height of their career when they seemed unstoppable! We're introduced to Daisy in the late sixties who hangs out on the Sunset Strip sneaking into clubs, sleeping with rockstars and dreaming of her own turn when she can perform at Whisky a Go Go. When she hits 20, she's beautiful and is getting noticed.

At the same time, The Six, a band led by Billy Dunne is also doing well and on the night of their first tour, he finds that his girlfriend is pregnant and he gets a bit wild on the road.

A producer realizes that if Daisy and Billy combined their powers, they would become legendary and this coupling is the baseline of this novel. We learn about the journey of these two forces in the sixties and seventies and how they eventually would fall apart when they seemed so unstoppable.

GINGERBREAD

Riverhead Books

Helen Oyeyemi

We have all read our share of children's books where gingerbread is talked about. In this book, the magic of gingerbread hits another level in looking at it as a family legacy in the form as an inheritance as a recipe.

We meet Perdita Lee a British schoolgirl and her mother Harriet Lee who is looking to step into the school social hierarchy. As normal as they seem, the two share a gold painted 7th floor walk up with verbal vegetation and there is the fact that they make gingerbread. Although it goes unnoticed in London, it is sought after in Druhástrana, her mother's hometown.

Throughout the book which spans decades, we learn of family grudges, jealousies, real estate and more with the backdrop of gingerbread which binds the family together and holds their true value.

GIRLS WITH SHARP STICKS

Simon Pulse

Suzanne Young

When reading this, you will think of Westworld meets The Handsmaid's Tale. The Girls of Innovations Academy are beautiful and well-behaved. Under the watchful gaze of their Guardian, they receive a well-rounded education as obedient girls, free from arrogance, troublesome opinions or individual interests.

But the controlled existence is a facade. As Mena and her friends uncover the dark secrets of what’s actually happening there—and who they really are—the girls of Innovations Academy fight back.

THE THREAD

OZY

Spotify

When things happen in life, they are not only isolated events - even when you think that they are disconnected. In this podcast by the OZY team, they explore an event that takes place and showcases the connections throughout history (even when they are decades apart) to make them happen. If you have to check this out, you can go back to Season 1 in order to see how John Lennon, JD Salinger, Eugene O'Neill and Lenin are all connected to historic events that led to their iconic moments.

As you binge the seasons, you'll hear more threads that will give you pause about cause and effect and the power of influence and how intersectionality really is a motif that takes place in our history.

THE BURGER SHOW

First We Feast

Youtube

Earlier this month, we attended the launch of Season 3 of The Burger Show, sponsored by no-contract wireless service provider, SIMPLE Mobile. This season launched on March 5th on First We Feast’s YouTube channel with 6 episodes, highlighting the history of burgers through the celebration of innovation within the industry.

To kick off its season, Chef Alvin Cailin of EggSlut and NYC's The Usual located at the Nolitan Hotel - unveiled his latest cheeseburger "The Transformer" (a mixture of a Oklahoma fried onion burger and a Tennessee deep-fried patty, blanketed by Connecticut-style crispy cheese) to foodies while enjoying the premier episode with Tony Hawk which was projected on a massive screen outside of the restaurant across the street. Chef Cailin loves that he can translate his love for burgers into this series. Unlike the first two seasons, viewers will enjoy seeing burger culture across the US, whether Chef Cailin is remaking iconic burgers from Shake Shack or In-N-Out or he is making creations with a number of his celeb friends and tastemakers. It's worth noting that fans won't have to wait too long for Season 4 as this will debut later on this year with new burgers to explore and to create!
