Author: Flula Borg Narrator: Flula Borg Release Date: March 2020

Conan fan favorite and eccentric YouTube personality Flula Borg presents his first audiobook, a full-length travel-adventure through America's most coveted cultural events!  Flula Borg’s fascination with America and its “peoples” have warmed hearts nationwide. A frequent guest of Conan O’Brien, the German-born actor and multi-talented entertainer (think Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat crossed with Billy Eichner) fell in love with the United States upon his first visit as a young boy. Throughout his career, he has succeeded in regaling audiences with stories from his outlandish travel exploits while paying homage to his German upbringing, culminating in a personality that is supercharged and charmingly wholesome.   In this zany, eye-opening and delightful six-part audio series, Flula travels the breadth of the United States in search of its coveted and weirdest pastimes to learn more about the country and to better understand what drives people to these cultural events. His adventures include: Experiencing the famed Iditarod dog-sledding race in Alaska Partying Up during the US Open of Surfing in California Donning Elvis duds for Elvis Week in Mississippi Portraying a Minuteman at Lexington’s famous Revolutionary War reenactment In each episode, Flula can be found “shooting the poops,” as he calls it, with the people he meets, including event organizers, participants, founders, and spectators. His goal is to understand what these quintessentially American event means to the communities involved, how each came to exist, and why they have all persisted—and of course, how he can take part! In addition, each segment is filled with brief anecdotes about Flula's childhood and his burgeoning love for America.  Infused with Flula’s infectious enthusiasm, Wanderlust, USA is an immersive and uproarious experience that reveals the heart of America in a unique way. Boom!

Simon Evans Goes to Market: The Complete Series 1-5: A BBC Radio 4 Comedy and Economics Show Audiobook

Simon Evans Goes to Market: The Complete Series 1-5: A BBC Radio 4 Comedy and Economics Show

Author: Simon Evans, Tim Harford Narrator: Simon Evans, Tim Harford Release Date: March 2020

All five series of Simon Evans’ BBC Radio 4 show explaining economics through comedy How do you make money funny? How do you put the comedy in commodity? In this BBC radio show, Simon Evans sets himself the challenge of making economics entertaining through comedic lectures, with the help of special guests including investment gurus, financial journalists and economists. In Series 1 and 2, he examines the chequered social and economic histories of eight important commodities: land, gold, oil, grain, alcohol, tobacco, coffee and sugar. By looking at these fundamental products, Simon brings us to a closer understanding of how global economic forces have a far-reaching and often surprising impact on our lives. Series 3 sees him exploring four of the stages that mark our journey through life – youth, marriage, birth and death – and how economics is part of every one of those stages, whether we like it or not. In Series 4, Simon looks at the concept of the ‘free lunch’ and shines a light on new ways of making money in the 21st Century, from social media and multinationals that appear to be operating tax-free to philanthropy and the cost of health. Finally, in Series 5, he points his jokenomics lens at the competing theories of Macro Economics and the ‘Big Beards’ who devised them – Adam Smith, Karl Marx and John Maynard Keynes – and reflects on how they shape our world today, and how they can help us out of our current economic predicament. Among his regular guests are Financial Times columnist and presenter of Radio 4’s More Or Less, Tim Harford; Timandra Harkness, author of Big Data: Does Size Matter?; and the Queen of investment know-how, editor-in-chief of MoneyWeek Merryn Somerset Webb. Produced by Tilusha Ghelani (Series 1), Claire Jones (Series 2 and 3), Richard Morris (Series 4 and 5)

Cinderella and the Glass Ceiling: And Other Feminist Fairy Tales Audiobook

Cinderella and the Glass Ceiling: And Other Feminist Fairy Tales

Author: Ellen Haun, Laura Lane Narrator: Amber Reauchean Williams, Ellen Haun, Laura Lane Release Date: March 2020

This wickedly wise (and wisecracking) parody of classic fairy tales redefines happily ever after for the modern feminist era. You know what? It's super creepy to kiss a woman who is unconscious. And you know what else? The way out of poverty isn't by marrying a rich dude -- or by wearing fragile footwear, for that matter. And while we're at it, why is the only woman who lives with seven men expected to do the cooking, cleaning, and laundry? Fairytales need a reboot, and comedy queens Laura Lane and Ellen Haun are the women to do it. In Cinderella and the Glass Ceiling, they offer a rollicking parody of classic (read: patriarchal) tales that turns sweet, submissive princesses into women who are perfectly capable of being the heroes of their own stories. Mulan climbs the ranks in the army but wages a different war when she finds out she's getting paid less than her fellow male captains, Wendy learns never to trust a man-boy stalking her window, Sleeping Beauty's prince gets a lesson in consent, and more. Busting with laugh-out-loud, razor-sharp twists to these outdated tales, Cinderella and the Glass Ceiling is fun, magical, necessary, and totally woke.

But Like Maybe Don't?: What Not to Do When Dating

Author: Arianna Margulis Narrator: Arianna Margulis, Barbara Heller, Kirby Heyborne Release Date: March 2020

The creator of the Instagram sensation But Like Maybe takes us on a journey through her worst dating mistakes--a hilarious, hopeful guide to what you need to get wrong in love before you get it right. Arianna Margulis's pen was set aflame when a boyfriend took her for a walk in Central Park. She was sneak-attack dumped because she 'interfered with his meditation schedule.' After a few sobs, she found her way to a Sharpie, doodled the hilarity and the heartbreak, and But Like Maybe was born. As her cartoons became an Instagram cult hit, Arianna chronicled her misadventures through modern love via a crop-topped doppelganger, equal parts optimistic and anxious, who holds tight to the belief that bae is out there. Now, her first audiobook is a witty and winning primer on what not to do when dating. Inspired by all the ways Arianna's gone wrong in her search for love, from planning matching outfits with her high school boyfriend without his knowledge to deplaning an aircraft because her crush texted, this charming and off-kilter anti-guide gently leads you to what matters: realizing that you're already pretty awesome. With plenty of advice for recognizing and moving on when he's just not that into you, Arianna shows how to not let a read receipt ruin your night, what to do when the slow fade commences, and how to flip the busy script on a guy. Dating can make the best of us a bit crazy. Keep this guide by your side so that the next time tequila urges you to text your ex, you can instead tell yourself . . . but like maybe don't.

In his signature childlike, dryly humorous style, Lord Birthday explores the things that make life so great, including jackets and bags and "booping someone on the nose." Both strange and strangely moving, this collection will delight fans and newcomers alike.

Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies: And Other Rituals to Fix Your Life, from Someone Who's Been There

Author: Tara Schuster Narrator: Tara Schuster Release Date: February 2020

Brutally honest, often hilarious, hard-won lessons in learning to love and care for yourself from a young vice president at Comedy Central who was called "ahead of her time" by Jordan Peele "Compelling, persuasive, and useful no matter where you are in your life."-Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Life Will Be the Death of Me   "A bracingly honest, funny read . . . like Wild meets You Are a Badass."-Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara Schuster was a rising TV executive who had worked for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and helped launch Key & Peele to viral superstardom. By all appearances, she had mastered being a grown-up. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess. No one knew that her road to adulthood had been paved with depression, anxiety, and shame, owing in large part to her minimally parented upbringing. She realized she'd hit rock bottom when she drunk-dialed her therapist pleading for help. Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies is the story of Tara's path to re-parenting herself and becoming a "ninja of self-love." Through simple, daily rituals, Tara transformed her mind, body, and relationships, and shows how to • fake gratitude until you actually feel gratitude • excavate your emotional wounds and heal them with kindness • identify your self-limiting beliefs, kick them to the curb, and start living a life you choose • silence your inner frenemy and shield yourself from self-criticism • carve out time each morning to start your day empowered, inspired, and ready to rule • create a life you truly, totally f*cking LOVE This is the book Tara wished someone had given her and it is the book many of us desperately need: a candid, hysterical, addictively readable, practical guide to growing up (no matter where you are in life) and learning to love yourself in a non-throw-up-in-your-mouth-it's-so-cheesy way.

Name Drop: The Really Good Celebrity Stories I Usually Only Tell at Happy Hour Audiobook

Name Drop: The Really Good Celebrity Stories I Usually Only Tell at Happy Hour

Author: Ross Mathews Narrator: Ross Mathews Release Date: February 2020

From Ross Mathews, the nationally bestselling author of Man Up!, judge on RuPaul's Drag Race, and alum of Chelsea Lately, a collection of hilarious and irreverent essays about his experience with Hollywood's most talked-about celebrities. Pretend it's happy hour and you and I are sitting at the bar. I look amazing and, I agree with you, much thinner in person. You look good, too. Maybe it's the candlelight, maybe it's the booze. Either way, let's just go with it. Keep this all between you and me, and do me a favor? Don't judge me if I name drop just a little. Television personality Ross Mathews likes telling stories. He was always outrageous and hilariously honest, even when the biggest celebrity he knew was his favorite lunch lady in the school cafeteria. Now that he has Hollywood experience—from interning behind the scenes at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to judging RuPaul's Drag Race—he has a lot to talk about. In Name Drop, Ross dishes about being an unlikely insider in the alternate reality that is showbiz, like that time he was invited by Barbara Walters to host The View—only to learn his hero did not suffer fools; his Christmas with the Kardashians, which should be its own holiday special; and his news-making talk with Omarosa on Celebrity Big Brother, which, as it turns out, was just the tip of the iceberg. Holding nothing back, Ross shares the most treasured and surprising moments in his celebrity-filled career, and proves that while exposure may have made him a little bit famous, he is still as much a fanboy as ever. Filled with tales ranging from the horrifying to the hilarious—and with just the right "Rossipes" and cocktails to go along with them—Name Drop is every pop culture lover's dream come true.
