DoubleLine Round Table:
Part 1 - Macro:
Part 2 - Markets:
Part 3: (Coming Soon)

A panel of managers/economists/insiders discusses the current global macro and US market situation. Lots of commentary and interesting points made on the same kind of topics that people here like to talk about (e.g. in the Permanently Low Interest Rates thread, discussions of impact of shift to ETF investing, rising debt, inflation/deflation debate). No discussion of cryptocurrencies.

Super cringey intro though.

The Tiger King
I'm two episodes in. These big cat people are really, really messed up. It seems like a very dirty business too.

If anyone likes sci fi The Expanse and Altered Carbon are entertaining. I'm only one season into each though. Picard is OK too but since I have never been into Star Trek it hasn't grabbed me as much.
