Two band bios pretty darned good. Jersey Boys (Netflix) and Bohemian Rhapsody, in which Remy

Re Iran: Tim Kaine with Chris Hayes points out the irony in Trump's breaking the diplomatic

anti nuke proliferation agreement meant to prevent a war, now provoking one. Also, talks about unfairness to military being used in his games. This guy is good.
