Reading: Still Crime and Punishment which should be no surprise. However I had anticipated being further in than Chapter 5 by this point.

Listening: Stuff you Missed in History Class on William Moulton Marston, the creator of Wonder Woman. So far he's invented a lie detector and is investigating women's emotional responses to bondage - suddenly Wonder Woman's lasso takes on a whole new dimension. He appears to have been both a feminist of sorts* and a polygamist. The former of which is, I gather, very evident in the early Wonder Woman comics (particularly his belief that the world would be a better place if run by women) the latter somewhat less so.

Watching: We have discovered Stanger Things. Very reminiscent of E.T. (it opens with a D&D game, is set in the 1980s and much of it is short from a child height viewpoint (a characteristic of E.T. according to B.))

*neither of his partners got suitable credit for their, in some cases considerable, input into his work.

One interesting thing that you find out if you read BDSM blogs by women is that the type of "women are naturally superior and therefore should all be dominatrixes" attitude you get from Marston is very unpopular with actual dominant women, because it tends to be associated with endorsement as the Only True Way of a dynamic in female-dominant het BDSM that can be summed up as "how DARE you imagine you deserve to touch me you DISGUSTING WORM", and is inherently hostile to actual het female sexual desire and pleasure.

As we're pretty much the same age, I think you'll have a similar reaction to Stranger Things as me. Who knew that 80s nostalgia would ever be a thing? ST was excellent the whole way through, and I'm really looking forward to their second season (which drops on Halloween).
