2022 Felt like it was over in the blink of an eye. After looking back at the last few years of reports, I decided I wanted to get back to more specificity. So I tried to clean up the numbers a lot more and made a more detailed breakdown in the media list. In 2023 I plan to add museums and cultural events to the list – dropping that mention here for accountability… 🙂
I got covid in June, and TV watching spiked.
As usual, I don’t list favorites or ratings (I keep ratings, but most everything lands in the 6 – 8 out of 10, so it’s not very helpful).
Music – Kids’ music still hits the top 5, but you know, We Don’t Talk About Bruno. Music is still a poor representation because I still bounce across multiple platforms. Apple Music on my phone. Spotify on the home system. I mostly listen to DJ sets on Youtube while writing on the weekends (that’s about 4 – 6 hours).

The new data point for 2022 – Who I watched media with.
My wife, my kids, my in-laws, and just solo. Sorry friends, we didn’t seem to watch anything together in 2022!! Maybe time to get the AV Club back together.
I’m back to commuting to the office 3 – 5 days a week. So podcasts are back. And I’m better for it.
Podcasts I Listened to Frequently in 2022:
The Daily – New York Times
Into It: A Vulture Podcast with Sam Sanders
We’ll Always Have Athens (vacation prep, great podcast)
One Notable Audio Drama I listened to:
These are still in my queue, but I don’t get to them often:
