What to Binge: Everyone seems to be watching Stranger Things on Netflix, and you should be too. I’m only a couple episodes in, but I’m hooked. Winona Ryder and Matthew Modine are both in the series that is fantastically Eighties in every way (except its pacing, which has been updated for our digital age attention spans).

What to Movie: If the Eighties seems too modern for you — and you’ve been watching some of the Olympic cycling events — this could be the perfect time to re-experience the excellence of Breaking Away. The 1979 flick totally holds up in every way.

What to Hear: The critics panned Suicide Squad. The fans still went to see it. For something less controversial, give a listen to the soundtrack.

What to Read: Since we’re listening to politicians debate the topic, it can’t hurt to actually know something about it. The NYT Magazine dedicated an entire issue to Fractured Lands: How the Arab World Fell Apart.
