Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook’s The Rest Is History, a twice-weekly podcast, is just the sort of thing we need right now for a little context and perspective.

Two newly released jazz box sets—Lee Morgan’s The Complete Live at the Lighthouse and Anthony Braxton’s massive Quartet (Standards) 2020—ought to keep you busy for a while.

Having recently read “the definitive history of the Vikings” by a professor in the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History at Uppsala University, Sweden, you’d think I would’ve turned my nose up at the History Channel’s Vikings, but then you’d be wrong. I’ve been streaming it on Amazon Prime, and honestly, I can’t get enough of it.

Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon series, featuring a world-renowned art restorer/Israeli assassin (no, really) is eminently enjoyable.
