This is a wonderful, lyrical defence of culture for culture's sake.

From 2007: a look at Tokyo's Tsukiji seafood market, the largest in the world, and the world's changing attitude to sushi. After reading this I felt like I probably don't need to read another thing about sushi ever again (I think that's a good thing?).
In search of the ultimate sushi experience, the author plunges into the frenzy of the world's biggest seafood market—Tokyo's Tsukiji, where a bluefin tuna can fetch more than $170,000 at auction—and discovers the artistry between ocean and plate, as well as some fishy surprises.

At the risk of outing myself as a member of the 'liberal elite', here are some of the best pieces I've read on the EU referendum outcome (aka Brexit) over the last few days. I suspect I might have another list soon, since I seem to be unable to stop reading about it...

- opendemocracy.net: We can only contemplate leaving the EU because its miracles have become banal (published before the vote) https://www.opendemocracy.net/uk/gilbert-ramsay/we-can-only-contemplate-leaving-eu-because-its-miracles-have-become-banal-brexit
- John Harris in The Guardian: 'If you've got money, you vote in... If you haven't got money, you vote out' http://www.theguardian.com/politics/commentisfree/2016/jun/24/divided-britain-brexit-money-class-inequality-westminster
- New Statesman: I want my country back http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/uk/2016/06/i-want-my-country-back
- Marina Hyde in The Guardian: The leavers have taken control. No wonder things are unravelling https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jun/24/leavers-take-control
- Tony Blair in the NY Times: Brexit's stunning coup http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/26/opinion/tony-blair-brexits-stunning-coup.html
The EU is an astonishing institution, unique in human history, imperfect because of the scale of its ambition. Let's not tear it down.

You may not expect pragmatism from a ghosthunter, but this guy has bundles of it. 
Far from the staged spookiness of cable TV, part-time paranormal investigator Dan Sturges pulls back the curtain on a decade spent searching for spirits.

From 1991: what it's like to spend 6 days at Paisley Park attempting to interview Prince.
In the fall of 1991, set to drop double-platinum Diamonds and Pearls, Prince sat down with writer Chris Heath for a rare interview. A crazy-rare interview: The singer had answered questions publicly just four times between 1984’s Purple Rain and that year. Go inside Paisley Park, where Heath lived for six days.

To this Brit, the burgeoning marijuana industry in the US - and the ripples it's creating - is pretty fascinating.

I loved this audio documentary on the cultural impact modernism had in the early 20th Century. If you've always kind of wondered what modernism actually is, and the context in which it arose, this is a pretty good introduction.

This ep of the 'Design Matters' podcast features Maria Konnikova, who wrote what sounds like a fascinating book about con artists, 'The Confidence Game'. Anyone read it?
The world's first podcast about design and an inquiry into the broader world of creative culture through wide-ranging conversations with designers, writers, artists, curators, musicians, and other luminaries of contemporary thought.

The Serial effect continues... This time with a UK-produced podcast that clearly has less talent/resource at its disposal, but which promises to tell an intriguing tale: the unsolved murder of private investigator Daniel Morgan in 1987.

Should be interesting: Malcolm Gladwell's next project is a podcast called Revisionist History.
Listen to Revisionist History, a new podcast from Malcolm Gladwell and Panoply Media. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.

'The Breakdown' is a podcast series taking a Serial-style look at a case as it unfolds. The current season looks at the case of a man who left his son to die in his car - he says it was an accident, but he's being tried for murder...
Here is the full list of Breakdown episodes.
