WHAT MISSOMA HQ ARE UP TO

Whilst Missoma HQ is working from home, we wanted to share what's keeping us entertained (outside of working hours of course). From Netflix must-sees to podcast hits, light some candles, stock up on snacks and make a note of our best picks.

 

WHAT WE'RE

READING...

 

MARGARET ATWOOD - The Testaments

The most hyped book of the year, The Testaments is definitely a must-read right now. Following on from the Handmaid’s Tale, The Testaments gives us more of an insight into the world of Gilead - praise be.

 

BETH O’LEARY - The Flat Share

If you want to get lost for a while, you won’t find better company. Leon and Rachel share a one-bedroom Stockwell flat but have never actually met, communicating only through Post-It notes - touching, unique and feel-good.

 

MICHELLE RICHMOND - The Marriage Pact

Still waiting to find the next Gone Girl? The Marriage Pact should be your next read. Centering on a recently wedded couple that join a marriage cult to ensure they never divorce, it’s a nail-biter of a thriller.

WHAT WE'RE

WATCHING...

 

MINDHUNTER

In case you missed it, Mindhunter was one of Netflix’s (many) big success stories last year. Based on true events, watch the FBI try to profile serial killers - it’ll give even the biggest true crime fans chills.

 

THE MORNING SHOW

She’s the woman who broke Instagram - we’re all over Jen Aniston’s first return to TV since Friends. Joined by Reese Witherspoon as a sassy, straight-talking morning news anchor, this is the one to get your friends on FaceTime and binge watch together.

 

SUCCESSION

If you’re looking for a plot to get your teeth stuck into, meet Succession. Following the Roy family, owners of the Waystar Royco media empire, this series will be sure to keep you on your toes - with a hard-hitting first episode.

PODCASTS

WE'RE LOVING...

 

HOW TO FAIL

Elizabeth Day’s How To Fail podcast is one thing we can always rely on to cheer us up. Perfect for when you need some inspiration, an audio hug or a little cry.

 

AKIMBO

Seth Godin - dubbed ‘the ultimate entrepreneur for the information age’ - offers his take on culture and how we can change it. From ‘Artificial Intelligence is Neither’ to ‘Pizza and Sushi’ it’s a multi-faceted take on modern living.

 

THE GUILTY FEMINIST

A fresh, funny and provocative discussion on matters that are rarely discussed in everyday life, this podcast picks apart feminist issues and challenges the status quo, in a positive way. Negative vibes, be gone!

WE'RE

LISTENING TO...

 

FOALS - PT 2 EVERYTHING NOT SAVED WILL BE LOST

Our favourite Indie Kings are back and rocking a heavier vibe. They’ve come a long way from their Math-Rock beginnings - crank up ‘The Runner’ and ‘Black Bull’ and let the music roll.

 

SORCHA RICHARDSON - FIRST PRIZE BRAVERY

Irish singer-songwriter Sorcha’s debut album is one we have on repeat right now. Upbeat yet sombre, (like Lana del Rey meets HAIM), tracks like ‘Don’t Talk About It’ are the soundtrack to our evenings in right now.

 

MICHAEL KIWANUKA - KIWANUKA

We couldn’t get enough of Michael Kiwanuka’s first album, Love & Hate, when it was released in 2016, so no surprises that his follow-up album is just as good with plenty of feel-good 70s vibes.
