Aotearoa’s lockdown continues, and some people have got a bit more time on their hands. Others haven't but are still looking for distractions from their new work-from-home life, their essential work and its new challenges, or the family being so close all the time.
We asked some TOP supporters for their favourite TOP-adjacent books, videos & podcast picks to take our minds off things, learn and challenge our thinking while we’re at home. Here's a list of things we think you’ll find interesting.
