Reading, Watching & Listening to Things #2 | Content for Designers | Engineers | Professionals

Hey Everybody,

I hope you’re all doing well and have been able to enjoy this summer, especially given the strange and unique times this year has brought us!

Today’s post marks entry #2 to my new Reading, Watching & Listening series where I recap and share some of my favourite content that I just can’t keep to my self!:)

If you missed the first post you can check out Reading, Watching & Listening #1 here, I initially planned to post these monthly, but having missed most of the summer due to scheduling, vacation and sometimes just forgetting, I think I’ll try to simply add to the series when I feel I have some really great things to share with you all!

So, without further ado, here are my picks and favourites for CAD Intentions: Reading, Watching & Listening to Things #2:





I’m sure many of you have at least heard of the book/series Dune. It dates back all the way to 1965 and is perpetually on most must-read lists if you’re a fan of sci-fi/fantasy, it’s had a movie adaptation in the 80’s and recently is set to be released on the big screen again this year!

This is the reason I’m recommending it and currently reading it now.

I’ve had Dune on my to-read list for years and for some reason never gotten to it, now that I know the movie is almost out along with myself putting this out to the universe on the blog I hope to finally get myself to commit and finish it. I even just grabbed a paper copy of the book from a local used bookstore to ensure I have no excuses to finish:)!

You can get the Paperback or Ebook Versions of Dune (Frank Herbert) on Amazon here:


And if you’re a movie fan, a teaser trailer has just come out for the movie, directed by Denis Villeneuve, who’s also directed the recent Blade Runner Remake, along with Arrival, both of which I really enjoyed!



While I’ve just started the series (episode 1 so far) I am really excited to continue watching and seeing how Raised By Wolves progresses. Along with my book pick and my general interest in sci-fi, this new TV series is right up my alley. The first 2 episodes are even directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, Blade Runner, etc..).

I’m excited to continue watching this one and I think many of you might enjoy it as well!

I’ve included the trailer below and you can watch it on Prime with the HBO Package add-on:




Reply All is easily one of my favourite podcasts of the last 3 to 4 years now. It’s one of the few podcasts that I listen to every episode they put out.

They cover all things internet, pop culture, and tech in a well-produced and entertaining format that is always changing and interesting no matter what topic they’re covering.

This week’s episode is an older one that was reposted during their summer break but it’s a good one that I re-listened to where the hosts take you on a tech-support adventure to uncover some misplaced/ lost bitcoin.
