The Stranger team has decided it’s high time to share our content catches.



Amie
This week’s content catch: Radioooo, an interactive music map
“Music has an amazing way of transporting people through time and place. That’s what this platform is all about; giving listeners access to music from around the world and across the 20th Century. It’s beautifully designed, easy to use and will make choosing music in the Stranger studio a whole lot more entertaining.”

Nicola
This week’s content catch: Lauren Laverne’s piece from The Pool.
“I’m a Lauren Laverne fangirl. So reading this piece she wrote for the publishing platform, The Pool, on ‘Why a meaningful life might be right under your nose’ was a real treat. Lauren with all her insightful wittiness, helped remind me that sometimes it takes the smaller nuances of life to draw our attention to what the point of the bigger picture actually is. Which is something we all need to do once in a while.”

Alfie
This week’s content catch: Mysteries of Vernacular
The hidden histories of words, brought to life through simple stop-motion animation and a perfectly balanced voiceover. A great example of a passion project that’s geeky in all the right ways.

Helen
This week’s content catch: Toussaint Morrison’s ‘Baby I’m Bad Weather’ 
“I stumbled across this ‘actor/vocalist/evil enabler’ and ‘hip-hop soul screamer’ on my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist and was instantly hooked. Apparently he’s a three times US national slam poet, and a ‘hopeless romantic and super-villain’ too. What more could you ask?”

Anna
This week’s content catch: Claire Underwood’s shoes.
“I’ve just finished gorging myself on House of Cards, Netflix’s amoral political drama starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. House of Cards chimes  unnervingly with the rum candidates’ behaviour in the run-up to the US election and Claire is cast from pure steel. Her amour is her four-inch heels – a symbol of her ambition, power and inaccessibility. Last year was so Kim Kardashian’s butt. This year it might just be Claire Underwood’s heels.”

Clare
This week’s content catch: Radio 4 Chain Reaction
“Victoria Coren-Mitchell (one of our favourite cerebral game show hosts) was on, talking about her poker career and how she started gambling at eight! Definitely worth a listen.”

Caitlin
This week’s content catch: An email from my fishmonger 
“You expect great content in the form of magazines, websites, newsletters and podcasts. You don’t expect it from a fish supplier on their daily special email. There is no need for great content. Their customers just want to know what’s on offer for the day. But at Fish For Thought, Rob Gwilliams takes his daily email as a chance to have a bit of fun and let his creative side show. Some of the best unexpected content I’ve ever seen, from someone who does it just for the love.”
