Weekend Edition – October 1 & 2

Howdy, Ottawa legal community! It’s the weekend, so the reference desk is closed. But to give you some inspiration, here’s what we’re reading, watching, and listening to this weekend.

Reading

Jen: “Missteps Hamper 1999 Hit-and-Run Death Probe
Brenda sent me this article to read ages ago, and I’m finally getting to it. I’ve long found true crime stories to be interesting, and here’s another from the infamous Manitowoc County.

Emily: “Nightfall” – Isaac Asimov
Nightfall is a short story recommended to me by science fiction fans. It has been awesome so far!

Watching

Jen: All of Shomi.
This is a cop-out answer but count me among the people sad that it’s going away. I have two months to watch whatever I’ve been wanting to from the service!

Brenda: Jays
#OurMoment? Right? I’ll be in my blanket fort.

Listening To

Emily: “From Tree to Shining Tree” – Radiolab Podcast
This weekend I’ll be going for a hike in the woods to enjoy the fall colours, and think this will be an inspiring video to watch before I head out!

Brenda: “Bring on the Female Superheroes” – Christopher Bell, TED Talks Podcast
Having myself tweeted #WheresRey, I found this a very interesting talk on the merchandising of female characters in media, and the effects that it has on gender perceptions.
