What to Read: In my younger years, I was a TV sports reporter covering the SF Giants, sticking my mic into the postgame scrum so I could bring another generic, forgettable quote back to the studio.

Dave Eggers imagines just such a curveball scenario as only he can in this excellent short story in The Atlantic: The Comebacker.

+ What to Watch: The HBO three-part documentary Telemarketers chronicles the 20-year journey of two unlikely employees who stumble upon the murky truth behind a seedy New Jersey call center. And, trust me, this is not one of the slick, packaged, generic documentaries that often get parodied by Documentary Now.

Then he gives about 30 other definitive explanations on the same topic. The album was hard to explain and even harder to make.

But for many fans, it was the next, very different album that really changed everything (and ignited a movement that is commonplace today – artists recording tracks at home).

+ What to Hear: The Georgia indictment of Donald Trump provides an incredible overview of an unthinkable crime against America. But let’s face it, the PDF font is too small to read. So listen to it. The GA Indictment Read by Ali Velshi.
