SPORTS WARS

Wondery

Spotify

We have been a fan of Wondery's Business Wars, hosted by David D. Brown who shares the history and battle between businesses through serial episodes to dig into what made them great and in some cases who was unable to continue to compete.

With the success of this show, they recently dropped Sports Wars which is hosted by SB Nation's regular contributor, Dan Rubenstein. This looks at the rivalries that exist in sports and not just those by opposing teams! In its inaugural season that dropped this month, they started with the rivalry between Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre - quaterbacks on the Green Bay Packers. They highlight where this rivalry began, the backstory of both players as well as what was taking place as this feeling of contention continued to grow.

YOU VS WILD.jpg

YOU VS WILD

Netflix Originals

Growing up, the Athleisure Mag team enjoyed reading Choose Your Own Adventure books which allowed you to select an array of choices that led you through a journey that was either successful, perilous or somewhere in between. The beauty of it is that you could continue to read this and have a number of endings that had various levels of satisfaction.

This concept has been brought into a new interactive show with Netflix and Bear Grylls . We know Bear as an outdoorsman that is military trained who goes into a number of situations in the wild whether solo or with such celebs and personalities as former president Barack Obama, Ben Stiller and Vanessa Hudgens just to name a few.

In this new series, a series of episodes focus on a mission from getting medical supplies to a remote village, sustaining yourself in a survival mission and more. As Bear goes along his journey he gives you a choice between two different situations and outlines the pros and cons of each. You select what happens and go along for the ride. You can always go back to change the ending or see all possible outcomes.

FYRE

Netflix

Debuts 01.18.19

It seems like at any given point, there is a festival of some sort. Groups plan on attending these music events from where they will stay, what attire they will bring, enjoying performances and of course, to capture the perfect Instagrammable moments. When the Fyre festival hit the Internet, everyone saw a number of the world's top models and influencers who rocked swimwear and enjoyed a number of activities that were on an island estate formerly owned by Pablo Escobar.

What was built as a luxury festival ended up being an epic disaster that left guests stranded and confused. Netflix's Fyre documentary shows how Billy McFarland looked to launch his musical booking app with the festival and partnered with Ja Rule. In addition, we see other vendors and team members that worked with him to bring his vision to light.

Throughout the documentary, viewers watch the mounting problems that forced the venue to change, push decision makers to consider unsavory decisions to bring water to the event and more. Billed as, "The Greatest Party That Never Happened" - you get the benefit of a bird's eye of all the details that led to this avoidable disaster.

It's nearly impossible to say that you have never seen a Jean Claude Van Damme film. Known for blockbuster films where he gets the bad guy, has epic fight scenes and of course, he always gets the girl and the respect of those he works with. But what if
the man he was actually, was a secret agent, and the way we have known him as always been his alias?

Jean Claude Van Johnson explores this alternate reality through this comedy. The series begins with him coming out of retirement as an actor and agent as well as following him as he pursues his former flame. Hilarity ensues as he tries to step into his old life and inevitably messes everything up.

Artificial Intelligence blends effortlessly with humans in the series that showcases the depth of its AI characters and its impact on human lives. These synthetic (synths for short) beings have become fully integrated into a number of roles that allow
humans to focus on other tasks. This integration is made palatable due to the natural look of the synths (although there are slight differences that separate them from their human counterparts.

The series focuses on the sociological
element of this symbiotic relationship
which includes how a troubled marriage
survives when a synth is in the home, when a human mother is unable to cook for her children like her AI, and how those entering the work force feel resentment towards a synth population that is taking their jobs.

In addition to these concerns, there is the overarching one that focuses on what synths are, how they became conscious and how their relationship changes with the people they interact with. Do they turn on humans, do they begin to have interpersonal relationships and how they are linked with
one another?

In the second season, viewers will continue to follow the journey of the synths as they gain more awareness and navigate an ever changing modern world that continues to understand how to balance the relationships and realities between these co-existing
groups.
