What WPLN is Reading, Watching, Listening to, and Excited for in September 2023

READING | The Golden Spoon by Jessa Maxwell: September marks the end of summer and the beginning of spooky season, so we were looking for a light-hearted thriller that would work for lying on the beach over Labor Day or getting cozy on the couch with a pumpkin-scented candle burning. The Golden Spoon was the perfect option — and fans of The Great British Bake Off might particularly enjoy it! Learn more.

WATCHING | Being Mary Tyler Moore on Max: Mary Tyler Moore was a groundbreaking actress who revolutionized the way women were portrayed on screen. This 2-hour documentary covers her personal and professional life. WPLN Program Associate Katelyn Condrey says, "It was fantastic! It definitely highlighted the many 'firsts' that Mary Tyler Moore contributed to the TV industry and to American culture as a whole." Learn more.

LISTENING TO | "When Did Marriage Become a Luxury Good?" on the Freakonomics Radio podcast: Economist Melissa Kearney joins the Freakonomics podcast to discuss her new book The Two-Parent Privilege and the U.S. marriage and birth rates. Learn more.
