What we were clicking on and talking about this week at #FathomHQ.

It’s finally here! Season two of the Serial podcast launched Thursday, and so far I’m intrigued by the story of Sgt. Bowe Berghdahl. In other podcast news, I’m loving filmmaker Jay Buim’s in-depth interviews with interesting, entrepreneurial women like Alicia Yoon (founder of Peach & Lily) and Emily Weiss (founder of Into the Gloss) on Oh Boy by Man Repeller. – Berit, editor

Frank Sinatra would have been 100 years old today. We have until August 2016 to visit the Hoboken Historical Museum to see the exhibit “Frank Sinatra: The Man, the Voice, and the Fans.” In the meantime, watch his two best moods from early 1960s performances: plaintive in “One for My Baby” and blithe in “Fly Me to the Moon.” – Pavia, founder

Cássio Vasconcellos, an artist showing at Art Basel Miami this year, creates massive composites from overhead shots taken on flights. I can’t draw my gaze from his bird’s-eye photos of scenes we soar over regularly. – Daniel, editorial assistant

Cape Town is high on my to-go list for many reasons, including this treetop canopy walkway through their famous Kirstenbosch Garden. – Becky, assistant editor

Am I the only one who thinks the inside of Iceland’s Vatnajökull glacier looks like Superman’s Fortress of Solitude? – Daniel

One of my favorite hotel brands, 1 Hotels, is introducing a new initiative called 1 Less Thing to encourage donations of gently worn clothing. Guests can make more room in their suitcase by leaving an article of clothing in donation boxes placed in each room. – Berit

To mark the 30th anniverary of Out of Africa, a film that makes me cry every time I see it, Finch Hattons lodge in Tsavo National Park in Kenya has created an I Had a Farm in Africa flying safari. Sign. Me. Up. – Pavia

Thomas Wirthensohn’s feature documentary Homme Less, which hit the festival circuit earlier this year, follows one man’s remarkable double life in NYC. I’m loving the new trailer set to Mumford & Sons’ “Tompkins Square Park.” – Becky
