6. The New Podcast You’re Dead to Me

Greg Jenner has a new podcast that we’re keen to listen in on. Jenner works on the Horrible Histories TV series, well-known to kids and their parents for its sharp and funny take on the past.  Now he’s debuting what is essentially a Horrible Histories podcast for grown-ups called You’re Dead to Me. 

In each episode, comedians and serious academics are the guests. Together they investigate colorful characters and dramatic events from history. Topics include Stonehenge as explored by Richard Herring (with the help of an archaeologist); the history of football; the Spartans; and Boudica with comedian Sara Pascoe.

9. The new Gravity Haus in Breckenridge, Colorado

As staunch members of Team Snow, we have our eyes on the new Gravity Haus, a new 60-room ski-in/ski-out boutique hotel at the base of Breckenridge Ski Resort’s Peak 9.  The guest rooms have a modern alpine lodge appeal, with wood and plaid throws and a simple desk for the unavoidable email check-ins while on vacation. The entire property has an emphasis on eco-awareness, like WinkBed mattresses and natural bath products from EO Essential Oils.
