My favorite podcast app, Overcast, launched version 2.0 today. The new version is completely free. This means you get SmartSpeed, which almost imperceptibly speeds up podcasts for faster listening and has saved me over 70 hours of time, for free. Trust me: it's totally worth it.

Taylor Swift will be taking some much deserved time off after her 1989 World Tour wraps in December.
"I think I should take some time off," she said. "I think people might need a break from me. I'm going toÖ I don't know. Hang out with my friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I donít know."

Selena Gomez has revealed that she has been diagnosed with Lupus, explaining her recent tour cancellations and treatments.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal tissue.

This process can lead to destruction of the kidney, heart, brain, spine, and lung tissue.

It can affect almost any system in the body but its exact cause is unknown.
