Now that those unspeakable things have happened on Game of Thrones and the season has drawn to an end, you may find yourself wondering what do I watch now? Maybe you should turn to Open Culture.
These folks track down “the best free cultural & educational media on the web.” And it’s somewhat astonishing. You can watch a brief interview with Gandhi or the I have a dream speech. You can listen to A.A. Milne read Winnie-the-Pooh or watch Leonard Cohen perform with U2.
Feeling ambitious? Take a course in Arabic or in Ethics (from Oxford University). I can’t do justice describing the site, there’s so much content. Links to hundreds of free online courses, free e-books, free audio books, videos. Links to poets reading their own work and tens of thousands of art masterpieces (like this Van Gogh from the National Gallery).
