What WPLN is Reading, Watching, Listening to, and Excited for: April 2024

READING | Build the Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier, by Arthur C. Brooks and Oprah Winfrey: As we approach another presidential cycle, it feels like a good time to return to the basics: The pursuit of happiness. Learn more.

WATCHING | Girls State on Apple TV+: This documentary follows girls from different backgrounds in Missouri to find out what America would look like under the leadership of teenage girls. The New York Times writes, "If you are imagining coed frivolity or drama, though, think again: These motivated girls are only concerned about the boys insofar as their proximity highlights the lack of parity between their programs."

LISTENING TO | Cowboy Carter by Beyoncé: With Cowboy Carter, Beyoncé becomes the first Black woman ever to top the country chart. We love to see women break records and shatter glass ceilings!

EXCITED FOR | Mother's Day! This will be the third year of WPLN's #MomsOnTheTrail series, which we do around Mother's Day to elevate the stories of mothers seeking or serving in public office. The stories of so many different women, with different backgrounds and different experiences, are always inspiring and informative.
