Welcome to a new episode of what to watch, read and listen. Today’s episode is a special request – my friend Birgit is running a half-marathon this weekend and asked for a new episode of What to Watch, Read + Listen to add to her podcast list.

The Best-of-Summer One

Since I haven’t done an episode for a while but watched, read, and listened to so many great pieces this summer, I decided to share my summer favorites with you. And Birgit, of course! So, let’s go. And Birgit, good luck for your run! You can do it, girl!!!

And a side note: I asked Barack Obama whether he wants to be a guest on my What to Watch, Read + Listen podcast. He is going to be in Munich for the Bits & Pretzel start up conference at the end of the month and I thought that this would be a great opportunity.  Let’s see if I will ever hear back from him. Update: I did! He wasn’t available for any interviews. So maybe next time!
