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.

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.
