Books - I like mostly nonfiction. I love Malcolm Gladwell's books,
Richard Dawkins, the Freakonomics books, and stuff like that.
Movies - I'm all over the place. I just really like movies. I'm
happy to watch a ridiculously stupid action or comedy, but I also
enjoy a well put together documentary, and everything in-between.
Some all time favorites are Harold and Maude, High Fidelity, Pulp
Fiction, Fight Club, The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride,
TV shows - I enjoy shows that are well written like How I Met Your
Mother, anything by Joss Whedon, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Big
Bang Theory,… and of course the Daily Show!
Podcasts - This American Life, Savage Lovecast, Radiolab, Risk, The
Moth, Freakonomics, ...
Music - I like to go out and see live music of any kind. If a
friend thinks that it is going to be good then I'm in. I listen to
everything from the classics like Led Zepplin, the Who, and the
Beatles to great 80’s like Squeeze, REM, Depeche Mode, and U2 to
good singer/songwriters Richard Shindell, Shawn Colvin, and Patty
Griffin, and on...
Food - I really enjoy food. I eat everything. I love food that is
well prepared. It doesn't have to be complex, but I really enjoy
clever combinations, or novel flavors, and I'm very into spicy
