What to Read: “Those working on immortality are long-term thinkers and fall, broadly, into two camps: those who want to free the human from the body, and those who aim to keep the body in a healthy condition for as long as possible.” From Anna Weiner in The New Republic: Meet the hackers trying to solve the problem of death.

+ What to Binge: This pick is from my kids. They weren’t big fans of the Lemony Snicket movie, but they locked in and burned right through the Netflix series, A Series of Unfortunate Events.

+ What to Groove: Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of British soul singer Michael Kiwanuka. I think you’ll dig it. Start with these two songs: One More Night and Love and Hate.
