Media Diet

This is an ever-growing list of media that I consume.

Why make this list?

I don't remember when I realized I was spending too much time on media (and information) that did little to nothing to enrich my life. I decided to be more purposeful and selective in how I invest my time and attention.

Keeping a list of the different media and information I've consumed helps me monitor how I've chosen to use my (not unlimited) time and attention.

Here is how it works:

  1. The list is divided up by calendar year.
  2. Something gets added to the list When I finish a book, long-form article, audiobook, graphic novel, film/movie, season of a TV show or podcast, etc.
  3. Things only get added if /when I finish them. (i.e., If I start them but don't finish them, they don't get added to the list.)
  4. When it comes to music, I only add albums that I've listened to from start to finish. These are albums I sit down and listen to without doing other stuff or things that I listen to lots and lots (i.e., I listen to it repeatedly for a long time) while doing other stuff.
  5. Podcasts are included when I finish a season of the podcast, or if the podcast is an ongoing thing (i.e., no seasons), I'll add it if I listen to it consistently throughout the calendar year.
