Aminatou Sow & Ann Friedman

The Call Your Girlfriend hosts share their weekend recs

We’re featuring recs from Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, hosts of the Call Your Girlfriend podcast and authors of the new book Big Friendship.

What to Watch: We’ve probably watched It’s Complicated a hundred times since it was released. The Nancy Meyers body of work is perfect for temporarily forgetting about the pandemic.

What to Read: We can’t stop talking about Mia Birdsong’s How We Show Up, about radically reimagining community for the future.

What to Follow: The graphic journalist Mona Chalabi’s account is full of important information that contextualizes the news of the day, presented in charming and inventive ways that make the data easy to absorb.

What to Cook: This shredded carrot, chickpea, and tahini salad is perfect for lunch on a hot day.

What to Listen to: The Home Cooking podcast with Samin Nosrat and Hrishikesh Hirway, which is all about cooking during the pandemic, is basically comfort food in audio form.
