Three On Thursday

This week I have 3 random things yet again. Random is how I roll these days, apparently. Let’s go!

  1. I recently found the website Good Black News. I’m clearly late to the party as it’s been around for 10 years, but nevertheless I’m really glad to be reading it now. It’s run completely by volunteers, and the purpose is to focus on positive news and stories of interest about black people all over the world. I was directed to the site when I read this editorial that a friend shared on Facebook and I’ve been reading and exploring ever since.
  2. If you aren’t already listening to Brené Brown’s podcast, Unlocking Us, I urge you to start. It’s described by Brown as follows: Conversations that unlock the deeply human part of who we are, so that we can live, love, parent, and lead with more courage and heart. Each week I have learned something new, sometimes about someone else and always about myself, I have laughed and cried and I truly look forward to it and find myself hanging on every word. Give it a try.
  3. Speaking of podcasts . . . the Happier podcast, which is co-hosted by sisters Gretchen Rubin and Liz Craft, has a book club and on July 8th they will be discussing The Dutch House by Ann Patchett. I listened to this book last year (it’s narrated by Tom Hanks and he’s wonderful) and I know many of you have also read it. I’m looking forward to hearing what Ann Patchett has to say about the book and I thought you might want to listen in as well and you’ve still got time to read the book if you haven’t already.

And that’s it for me this Thursday. If you wrote a post to share this week please include your link below. Thanks for joining me!

  1. Thanks for Good Black News and the Dutch House discussion. I’ve already read an editorial and a story about John Lewis’ documentary screening in Tulsa, so this will be informative and educational for me. I’m also looking forward to hearing from Ann Patchett and maybe I’ll re-listen to the book. Thanks, Carole!

  2. I am excited to check out that Dutch House episode. I don’t generally listen to the podcast but I did live that book.

  3. Thanks for these great links! I listened to Brene Brown’s episode with Ibram Kendi and am interested in checking out her other episodes. I definitely want to tune in to the discussion about The Dutch House, too — that was one of my favorite reads last year!

  4. I adore Unlocking Us. Best podcast around, I think! And I do look forward to hearing Ann Patchett discuss her book with Gretchen and Liz. Definitely going to check out Good Black News. Thanks so much for sharing the link. XO

  5. I love Brene Brown but have never listened to her podcast. Thanks for this gentle nudge. I must give it a try.

  6. In the camp with others re: Brene’s podcast…adding to my list as soon as I hit enter. So looking forward to the Happier discussion with Anne Patchett; So enjoyed Dutch House as told by Tom…

    Thanks for all the leads.

  7. Thank you for sharing these links today. I slipped off to read the editorial and take a look at Good Black News. I added a new book to my to read list and am going to look for that podcast.

  8. I’m also looking forward to The Dutch House … and to next week’s IG Live about Broken Places and Outer Spaces. Gretchen and Liz are doing such a nice job with All This!
