    Since you seem to be fans of The Handmaid’s Tale, I’d suggest trying Naomi Alderman’s The Power. Atwood apparently mentored her, and some have described the book as HT fan fiction, but I thought it was really good.

    • I will add that to the list. I have one and half books left to listen on my Game of Thrones re-listening quest and afterwards would be searching for something new, Power seems to be a good shout out. Also, I swear I heard it being mentioned on a podcast… but I can’t remember which…

    I have to admit, the release of Stranger Things S3 caught me flatfooted. I’m in the middle of Swamp Thing S1 (it’s a disgrace and shame it was cancelled after 1 episode – it’s far better than that), Krypton S2 and Legion S3. I have been hearing much in the way of positive buzz for When They See Us so will have to add it to the list.

    By the way, iTunes is going away for iOS users – being replaced by three related programs, but for Windows users nothing changes.
