COMEDY SEX GOD

Harper Wave

Pete Holmes

The Athleisure Mag team has been a fan of Pete Holmes as we enjoy his HBO show Crashing. Growing up as an Evangelical Christian, he was always aware of being good and avoiding being bad. He was so focused, that he married his first girlfriend and the age of 22 - only to find out that he was being cheated on. He decided that he needed to explore life and find a way to marry his beliefs with the life that he wanted. Pete came to comedy where he performed in front of thousand's of people as well as creating a new life spiritually and professionally.

CHERNOBYL

HBO

What is the cost of lies and the danger of directing a narrative. In HBO's 5 part series, we follow a number of characters who take us through the devastation of the explosion at Chernobyl, how it was handled by employees, how the government went about acknowledging the incident as well as coming to terms with the state of their actions.

At each moment, the viewer realizes that the risk of avoiding issues as they come up results in lost time and increasingly devastating costs. If you enjoy watching the series, you should also listen to their podcast as they explain how the creative team approached filming this miniseries and choices that were made in doing so. This podcast (of the same name) is available wherever you enjoy listening to your favorite shows.

THE SHRINK NEXT DOOR

Wondery

Spotify

Imagine it's the 80s and you live in the Hamptons and everyday you see your neighbor. He's at home and throws parties that a number of people enjoy each year. You realize that the neighbor is a psychiatrist who loves being around celebrities. You also notice that he enjoys a well manicured house that includes greenery, koi fish and more, and the gardener seems very particular about ensuring that these tasks outdoors are completed.

But when a journalist found out through another neighbor that the psychiatrist did not own the Hamptons home and that the gardener was the owner an intricate story unfolds that shows the lengths that the psychiatrist went to in order to embed himself in this and other patients lives to their detriment. In this true story that is extremely binge worthy, you have to keep reminding yourself that this happened.
