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

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.

Flatiron Books

The Guest Book is such an exciting book and won't be out until May of this year, we suggest that you pre-order this book now. In this novel, you learn about the 3 generations of Milton's as they appear in 1936, 1959 and then in the present day.

Who would think that a simple word "no" would not only hurt Kitty Milton in 1936 as well as for the rest of her life, but would also create a rippling effect for future generations? Kitty and her husband Ogden come from families that are considered the backbone of the country. Not meant to be more then just uttering it at one point in their lives, they enjoy their decadent lives living within their comfortable world - change is beginning to take shape in other areas.

As we move onto 1959, we move from Maine to NYC where we see Kitty in the next phase of her life and two strangers emerge within her family. One has garnered the attention of her daughter while another makes them evaluate the state of their family and what it stands for as change continues.

This change is so present that the very finances of the family are at risk now that Kitty has passed on and in finding out how they can keep the island due to not being able to afford, it they must dig into their family history to uncover myths that threaten the image of the family.

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.

THE PATH
Hulu

Last spring, Bingely Streaming shared the season premier of The Path which follows a family at the center of a controversial cult movement as they struggle with rela tionships, faith and power. Each episode takes an in-depth look at the gravitational pull of belief and what it means to choose 

between the life we live and the life we want. The series blends elements of mystery-thriller, romance and the supernatural.

If you're into fast paced shows, The Path rewards viewers in its patient and methodical approach to unfolding its story over it's first season which included 10 episodes. 

Season 1 of The Path ended with Eddie  (Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul) and Sarah (True Detective's Michelle Monaghan) at a crossroads in their marriage. 

Season 2 continues with these characters, who are all members of a religious cult called the Meyerist Movement, headquartered in upstate New York. Eddie recently returned from a sort of vision quest in Peru, and saw things while there that are now seriously testing his faith. Sarah is Eddie’s wife, a 100 percent faithful, life-long member of the movement, who becomes suspicious of her husband's odd 

behaviour. If you've seen the trailer, you see that their relationship hasn't improved. 

Sarah in particular seems like she’s struggling with how to proceed emotionally, while teenage son Hawk seems like he’s squarely siding with his dad on this one. It’ll also be interesting to see what type of fallout occurs due to the shocking revelation Eddie experienced in the very last scene of season 1, as it’s hard to imagine him not having a million questions about what he’s just seen.

The real wildcard is Cal (Hannibal’s Hugh Dancy), an ambitious – and sometimes frighteningly violent – Meyerist leader with designs on taking over after the movement’s creator dies.
