NOW What episode 35: The best TV to watch this summer

NOW writers convene for a panel about the TV shows they’ve been watching, and what’s worth catching up to


One of the very first episodes of this podcast, back in late March, featured a roundup of NOW writers talking about best TV shows they were watching for distraction during the global quarantine.

Now that Ontario is moving towards stage 3 of reopening, we thought we’d offer a few more recommendations… just in case you were looking for one more thing to catch up on this summer.

So in this super-sized episode I’m joined – in order of appearance – by NOW writers Natalia Manzocco, Glenn Sumi, Kevin Ritchie and Richard Trapunski. And don’t worry if you miss a recommendation or two; a handy list of everything we discuss is posted below.

NOW What is a twice-weekly podcast that explores the ways Torontonians are coping with life in the time of coronavirus. New episodes of NOW What will be released every Tuesday and Friday.
