What to Doc: In the three part series Five Came Back on Netflix, contemporary directors tell the story of five legendary Hollywood filmmakers who enlisted in the armed forces to document World War II. It’s worth it just for the contrast between the old news cycle and the current one. (As a test, see if you can watch an entire episode without once checking your phone for new Trump news.)

+ What to Consider: American Crime has long been proof that network TV can still serve up innovative and high quality shows. All of its seasons are worth watching. And season three is quite timely, with a look at illegal immigration and human trafficking. The acting is superb (each season, the actors take on different roles in completely new stories).

+ What to Read: Related to the above, from NPR: In U.S. Restaurants, Bars And Food Trucks, Modern Slavery Persists.

+ What to Hear: On the Axe Files podcast, Michael Froman, the former U.S. Trade Representative, talks with David Axelrod about why technology — and not free trade — poses the biggest threat to middle class jobs and wages in America. (Yes, this link is an example of editorial bias. But not because Froman worked for Obama. It’s biased because he’s a family friend and is one of the top two smartest kids to grow up in my neighborhood.)
