What to Doc: No one does corruption quite like FIFA. For a good pre-World Cup watch, check out FIFA Uncovered, a four-part documentary on Netflix. If you’re wondering how the hell this year’s World Cup ended up in Qatar, this is the show for you.

+ What to Book: “As a homeless teenager writing college essays in her rusty Toyota Corolla, Emi Nietfeld was convinced that the Ivy League was the only escape from her dysfunctional childhood.
