Summer has well and truly settled in and with the mercury sitting high and your tans feeling fresh, there’s a sling of binge-worthy antics you need to get around.

TV Show

DIRTY JOHN

The dream of anyone trying online dating is to find the perfect partner. And the nightmare? Finding someone who loves you; except they’re a liar, a thief, and a convicted stalker. Based on a true story *shudder*, and the podcast by the same name, Dirty John is a crime thriller bound to freak you the heck out, just like the actual event did in real life. Dirty John is out February 14th (see what you did there, Netflix).

Podcast

Case Closed
 

We stan a true crime podcast, and this one has a good twist. Oh it’s full of mystery, but most amazingly, it’s about the times the good guys win and the case is closed. Season one is based on the New York Times bestselling book Secrets of a Marine’s Wife and follows the story of a woman who kissed her husband goodbye at his military base and was never heard from again. Did something happen to her at Joshua Tree where she was meant to be scouting hiking trails? Exactly who is hiding what? Tune in and find out.

Documentary

Period. End of Sentence.

In a rural village outside Delhi, India, women lead a quiet revolution. They fight against the deeply rooted stigma of menstruation. Period. End of Sentence. — a documentary short directed by Rayka Zehtabchi — tells their story. For generations, these women didn’t have access to pads, which lead to health problems and girls missing school or dropping out entirely. But when a sanitary pad machine is installed in the village, the women learn to manufacture and market their own pads, empowering the women of their community. It's also Oscar-nominated so as if you need more convincing.

Music

AJ Tracey: AJ Tracey

AJ Tracey’s self-titled debut album is an eclectic mix of grime, dancehall and in an unexpected twist, country. The West Londoner flex’s his music muscles in an array of directions throughout this full-length LP having built up his artistry with a heap of EPs since 2011. Your go-to tunes on this album will be Plan B (one of the oldest tracks on the album), Double C’s and Ladbroke Grove which is a garage-fuelled nostalgic banger you’ll have on repeat.
