What I saw somewhat recently #70: September 24, 2020

  • Song Exploder is coming to Netflix – I’ve been a big fan of Song Exploder for a long time. One of my favorite episodes is Arrival but they are all very good. Now it is coming to Netflix.
  • Long Way Up – I was a huge fan of Long Way Round and Long Way Down (and Jupiter’s Travels – which inspired Ewan to do these trips) and this new series is pretty good. The electric bike bit is starting to wear a little though. All three series are available on Apple TV+ so Eliza and I are going to watch them all.
  • Feynman Lectures on Physics – All three volumes are available for free. Consider my winter reading squared away.
  • Web Stories – Google made a WordPress plugin that allows people to create the Stories format that you see on Instagram, et al for your own web site. I can see the motivation; Google can’t index stories on social networks. I’ll be looking more closely at this.
  • Speedbag videos – I never knew this could be so captivating. Via Kottke.
  • Dos Boat – Meat Eater is back with their fishing YouTube series.
