TV Shows/Movies/Podcasts Mentioned:

  • After Life (Netflix) – This Ricky Gervais show is one of my favorites of the year so far. Funny, deep, heartfelt, and only 6 episodes.
  • The Avengers: Infinity War – I did a whole rant about how this movie is just like the finance industry. I guess it was okay if you like these kinds of movies but the superhero genre just isn’t for me.
