Happy Holidays from Lemonly
Hey there, Adventurer!
Season’s greetings from all of us here in Lemonland. We know lots of folks are working from home or away from the office this year, so our holiday gift is totally digital-friendly.
As our way of saying thanks for collaborating with us in 2021, we’ve put together some hand-picked, Lemonhead-loved recommendations to help inspire and entertain you as we head into the new year.
Our picks below will speak to your inner go-getter, learner, and explorer.
📚 Good Reads
Whether we’re immersing ourselves in audiobooks or toting around trusty paperbacks, the Lemonheads are readers. Here are two of our team’s top-rated reading recommendations for Adventurers.
Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey
Alright, alright, alright. Named one of the best books of the year by The Guardian, Matthew McConaughey’s memoir is a guide to finding more “green lights”—the opportunities and moments that push us forward. It’s a love letter to life and the lessons learned along the way. We recommend the audiobook version, narrated by McConaughey himself.
Fuzz by Mary Roach
What happens when nature breaks the law? Mary Roach is a fantastic and funny journalist who writes about intriguing subjects in an engaging way. Our team has loved her other books Stiff and Gulp, so her latest release, Fuzz, was a quick addition to our reading list. It’s a deep dive into the ways humans impact—and are impacted by—nature and wildlife.
We’re big fans of storytelling and information presented in an engaging way, so it’s no surprise our listening queues are packed with podcasts. Here are a few we recommend — selected just for the Adventurer in us all.
The Dirtbag Diaries
The Dirtbag Diaries is a show all about adventure — climbing, skiing, hiking, biking, running, traveling, or however you explore. Host Fitz Cahall and team share stories about wanderers, travelers, and explorers taking on the great outdoors. Go on, get out there!
This show explores some of the unanswered questions about the world around us, from deep sea to outer space and everywhere in between. For starters, check out their November episode, “Mind Readers,” about how we explore that most mysterious frontier — the human brain — through evolving science and…storytelling? Yep! Give it a listen.
Wild Ideas Worth Living
Ever had a wild idea? The guests on this show have, and their interviews each week will inspire you to follow through on yours. Entrepreneurs, athletes, authors, scientists — this podcast tells their stories about making a wild idea into reality.
🎶 New Tunes
To help you set the vibe, we put together a custom playlist with tunes fit for an Adventurer. These songs are great for wandering, walking, running, skiing, or whatever your next adventure entails.
