"As a producer/storyteller, I watch a LOT of content on a daily and weekly basis. I try to keep up on trends and styles that find their way into filmmaking, and storytelling that are intriguing to me for various reasons. The playlist links I collected are pieces of content that span a variety of concepts that are tied together by some pretty interesting themes, all of them representing some sort of alignment with my view of the world. From physics and nostalgia-fueled dramas, to comedy and politics. Enjoy."

- Ifanyi Bell, Executive Producer, Open Signal Labs
