Reading: Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire. Seanan McGuire's name comes up a lot in my corner of the Internet so I thought I would give one of her books a try. It's another urban fantasy detective novel. Its main protagonist is a changeling rather than a wizard but otherwise it doesn't seem greatly different from the rest of the genre.

Listening: I have been struggling with the Machine Ethics podcast - mostly that it randomly won't actually play, but eventually decided that maybe the problem was only the early episodes and so skipped ahead to the point where it started interviewing people I had heard of and, in many cases, knew. I'm not sure I'm necessarily learning much but it is interesting hearing relevant people given space to talk.

Watching: We watched Aquaman. I was tempted to say it was "very linear" which was also my criticism of Wonder Woman, but I'm not sure that's exactly true. Both feel to me like they have a certain simplicity of story where MCU films tend to have more complexity but I'm struggling to place my finger on what exactly it is that gives me that feeling since plenty of the MCU films, particularly their origin stories, are quite linear in conception.
