What to Watch: It’s no secret that some politicians have been attacking the free press. But that’s not the only risk the industry is facing. There are also legal challenges to freedom of speech, including Hulk Hogan’s Peter Thiel-backed lawsuit that took down Gawker Media. You may not like either side in this documentary, but that’s one of the reasons why its so important. On Netflix, Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press.

+ What to Stream: I’ve been waiting for Cage the Elephant’s latest album, Unpeeled, featuring stripped down, acoustic versions of some of their best songs. And it didn’t disappoint. Check it out on Spotify or the music site of your choice. It will make you feel good.

+ What to Read: “The world feels more dangerous. Our streets seem less safe. The assault on our values is constant. The threats feel real. The enemy is out there – just check your feed.” Tobias Rose-Stockwell with a piece that will have you nodding your head in agreement: This Is How Your Fear and Outrage Are Being Sold for Profit.

+ What to Trick: Here’s a short video on Franco Pascali, a 19 year-old magician and cardistry artist. This is my favorite subject. Not cards. People who are incredibly passionate about what they do.
