This list will spark joy – we promise

Read. Watch. Listen. introduces you to the personal side of our faculty, staff and alumni. Participants are asked to answer three simple questions about their reading, viewing and listening habits – what one book or newspaper/magazine article is grabbing your attention; what one movie or television show has caught your eye; and what album/song, podcast or radio show are you lending an ear to.

Meghan Cocurullo is the Digital Engagement Officer for Western Alumni.

Today, she takes a turn on Read. Watch. Listen.

Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. I read it long before the show, and it did change my life. I can’t say I still fold up my socks with her level of perfection, but there has definitely been a lasting impact.


Pretty much every Netflix Christmas movie. Like, The Christmas Wedding Planner. Each of these movies incorporate some type of cookie/gingerbread house making competition, garland and festive table cloths. Just the type of easy cheesy line-up I love at a busy time of year.


Meditation Minis Podcast (Chel Hamilton). This is a go-to for me during the workday. I like to step away from my desk and listen to an episode while taking a brisk walk around campus. A few minutes is all it takes.
