Fall brings a resurgence of culture. The best shows and movies come back to Netflix, and we become more invested in culture again.

Here are three can’t-miss things to watch, listen to, and see in October 2018.



What to Watch in October: Beautiful Boy

Based on a memoir of the same name, Beautiful Boy follows writer David Sheff (Steve Carell) as he struggles to help his college-bound son, Nic (Timothée Chalamet), overcome

a crystal-meth addiction. When Nic vanishes, David spends his nights looking for him and his days researching his disease, haunted by memories of them surfing, driving, and listening to music together. Once found, Nic cleans up but soon slips into a brutal cycle of recovery and relapse. With some 64,000 overdose deaths annually in the U.S., the film is heartbreaking because of its familiarity and its likely end. (10/12)

What to Listen to in October: Back to Back Podcast

Essential listening for NBA junkies, Back to Back, launched in March, is the brainchild of Jade Hoye, previously of ESPN’s TrueHoop and The Basketball Analogy podcasts. The show is effectively five in one, with a different segment each day, covering basketball, culture, and beyond. On the “Friday Mailbag,” hosts field listener questions on dating, life, and sports—with pure-gold responses.

True Detective is coming back for a third season, and HBO is ready to give fans a deeper look. After the intense, time-hopping trailer, the first batch of photos has been released, showing off the main cast, including Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), and the style of how this new season will look. In short, you’re going to wish it was January already.

ys, a Northwest Arkansas police detective who is investigating a “macabre crime” in the Ozarks region that spans over a number of decades, according to Deadline. The story of Season 3 will play out over three different time periods as Hays and his partner Roland West (Stephen Dorff) dig into the crime, which involves the disappearance of two children.



The cast includes a number of talented actors, including Scoot McNairy (Killing Them Softly) who plays Tom, a father who gets connected to the police officers over the years of them investigating the case; Carmen Ejogo (Alien: Covenant) as Amelia Reardon, a teacher who is connected to the missing children of the case; Ray Fisher (Justice League’s Cyborg) as an older version of Wayne’s son Freddy Burns; and Mamie Gummer (The Newsroom) as Lucy Purcell, a mother who gets involved in the case as well. Other actors in the cast include Rhys Wakefield, Sarah Gadon, Emily Nelson, Brandon Flynn, Michael Graziadei, Josh Hopkins, Jodi Balfour, Michael Greyeyes, Jon Tenney, and Deborah Ayorinde.

Season 1 of True Detective, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and had all episodes directed by new James Bond 25 director Cary Fukunaga, earned rave reviews and won numerous awards, but Season 2 wasn’t as well-received. Now, creator Nic Pizzolatto will get the chance to get back to the quality of Season 1 with this new story.

This Incredible ‘True Detective’ Scene Shows Why Cary Fukunaga Is the Perfect Director for the Next James Bond Film

The crew behind the camera with Pizzolatto includes writer David Milch (Deadwood, NYPD Blue) writing an episode, while directors Daniel Sackheim (The Americans, Better Call Saul) and Jeremy Saulnier (Hold the Dark) will be helming episodes.

Along with the new photos below, the show finally got a release date: Sunday, January 13 at 9 p.m.

Here’s a look at the new season of the series:

It’s common for runners to want to break the two-hour mark in the half-marathon.

But University of Oregon student and club track runner Justin Gallegos isn’t a common runner. The college sophomore has cerebral palsy—and he just signed a contract with Nike as their first professional athlete with the congenital disorder, according to a press release from the brand.

Tips for Running Your First Marathon

Gallegos began running as a high school freshman in Santa Clarita,

California, and knew the challenges that lay ahead of him, since cerebral palsy affects muscle coordination and body movement.

“I saw that was improving my quality of life,” Gallegos told Fox 12. “It was making me stronger. It really didn’t matter that I was finishing last in most of the races.”

Gallegos grew faster and more efficient, clocking 7-minute-miles in UO’s running club. So he set a new goal: run a half-marathon in under two hours. He called a friend at Nike Running (Nike’s headquarters are based in Oregon), and the brand jumped at the opportunity to help.

The Best Marathons to Run in the World

Senior human performance researcher, Brett Kirby, Ph.D., the lead physiologist in charge of preparing Eliud Kipchoge for Nike’s moonshot Breaking2 attempt to shatter the two-hour marathon, and a group of Nike innovators, analyzed Gallegos’ gait and crafted a custom pair of Air Zoom Pegasus 35. The shoe was equipped with FlyEase, a new zipper-and-strap system that allows athletes of all ages and abilities to put a shoe on and off autonomously. They also emphasized the shoe’s forefoot durability, cushioning, and stability to assist Gallegos’ balance. 

On race day, Gallegos finished the half-marathon in just 2 hours and 3 minutes. While it was just shy of his goal, Gallegos told Nike he’s setting out to run another half-marathon by the end of 2018 and a full marathon in the future.

To sweeten the deal, six months after his half-marathon, Gallegos was surprised at his university with a three-year contract—hand delivered by Nike’s Insights director at the end of a race. The historic contract was signed on Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day.

The Science Behind Nike’s Breaking2 Attempt

“Growing up with a disability, the thought of becoming a professional athlete is, as I have said before, like the thought of climbing Mt. Everest,” Gallegos said in an Instagram post. “It is definitely possible, but the odds are most definitely not in your favor.”

All the more reason to try, we say.
The Rollogo suitcase’s design makes accessing your gear easier—but an even better feat is how it actually charges your tech on the go. Little generators built into the wheels power an internal battery as you walk to the gate. Finally, all that traipsing through the airport is a good thing.



Here are some of our favorite features.

Juice Bar

ling casters. Once juiced, the TSA-compliant 8,000­mAh power pack will recharge two devices simultane­ously, and has enough power to revive an iPhone about four times or a full­size MacBook once.

Smart Storage

While the battery is the star, the organization inside the Roll­ogo is just as useful. A magnetic outer flap keeps magazines within easy reach, while a zippered compartment conceals sleeves for a 16-­inch laptop and a smaller tablet. Your tech is always accessible, even while the bag is upright, and the sleeve pulls out quickly for screening.

Power Move

When the wheels are moving at an average walking speed, they generate about as much power as a 1­amp wall adapter plugged in for the same amount of time. If you find the airport golden ticket—an available wall outlet—you can plug the power pack directly into the outlet, then throw it into any bag as backup during excursions.

Bonus: The app notifies you when the bag moves or is out of Bluetooth range of your smartphone.
