It's that time of year again, the time where everyone puts out a list of the things they watched and read that they thought were the best of their kind. One of my favorite issues of these lists comes from the 44th president of the United States. 

With his time off, Obama seems to watch everything and keep up with the right kinds of trends. For example, he sees the onslaught of streaming blurring the lines within entertainment.

  • Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

  • Martin Eden
  • Let Him Go
  • Time
  • Boys State
