/// Information Diet: Erika Christensen

January 13, 2012  |  Media Week

What’s the first information you consume in the morning? I suppose it’s a tie among text messages, emails and Twitter. I use Twitter for everything. When there’s breaking news, it doesn’t matter who you follow, you’re going to find out about it. What do you read or watch or listen to at the breakfast table? I had a big New York Times crossword puzzle phase. And there’s a book that I’ve been meaning to read that’s sitting on my breakfast table—it’s called Stiff, and it’s about the journey of your body if you donate it to science after you die. A friend recommended it. My boyfriend keeps asking, “Can you get this off the table?” because the cover is a cadaver’s bare feet. What occupies your mind in the car, on the subway, train or bus? I’ll get in trouble if I say Twitter! I’m an NPR and KCRW person. Are you a TV junkie or on an airtime-restricted diet? Probably more of the latter—I’m on a fairly restricted TV intake. If you’re a couch potato, what do you watch, and how: TV, laptop or tablet? I’m a latecomer to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but now I’m really into it, and I just watched this last season of Breaking Bad and am hooked. I’m also making my way through the third season of The Wire on DVD. It’s definitely a saga.
