As many of us isolate ourselves in our homes and start social distancing to combat coronavirus, Friends of Friends has rounded up some of the most interesting articles from across the internet to help you fight the quarantine boredom. This week, we’ve been reading about the best podcasts to listen to, how you can get a culture fix from the comfort of your couch, and the Finnish interior architect who has designed over a hundred chairs in his lifetime.

Guggenheim Museum in New York to the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, Travel and Leisure rounds up 12 of the best cultural institutions that are offering virtual tours to take from the comfort of your couch
- “A garden is the perfect metaphor for life and regeneration,” says James Pearson. T Magazine visited the British master gardener at his English country refuge in Somerset to find out about the restorative nature of green open spaces
