No rundown of blogs that I love would be complete without NPR’s Monkey See blog. It’s mostly though not entirely written by Linda Holmes. I first became familiar with Linda’s writing many years ago when she used to recap for Television Without Pity. I also read the personal blog she used to keep during that time. I was sad when she stopped working for TWOP and updating her blog, so I was very excited a few years ago that she had moved to NPR and was writing the Monkey See blog because I had sorely missed her voice in the meantime.
The blog covers all manner of pop culture related things both seriously and humorously. It also gave birth to one of my favorite podcasts Pop Culture Happy Hour, which I wrote about way back in one of my very first posts on this blog. If you in any way like pop culture and aren’t already reading this blog I highly recommend that you check it out.
