Phil’s Best of 2017 Lists

January 10, 2018

Another year is in the book, and with it came another year full of great books, movies, documentaries, TV shows, podcasts, and important life lessons. As we start 2018, I thought I’d share with you my “Best of 2017” lists of books, movies, documentaries, TV shows, and podcasts finished last year (with a few “special appearances” from some of my 2016 favorites since I kept putting off this blog post last year : )). For the sake of time, I’m going to spare you a lot of commentary on why I chose these things – if you want the full commentary, let me know and we’ll talk about it offline sometime.

So, here it goes:
