Here are a couple of things to watch/read while you're stuck in the house.

First is Midnight in Chernobyl: The Untold Story of the World's Greatest Nuclear Disaster. I'd read several books on Chernobyl previously, but this is by far the best, with loads of additional detail and sources. You wouldn't think that a book about a 30+ year old disaster would be riveting, but that's definitely the right word to describe it.

Next, and boy, this delivers in every way: "Tiger King" Murder, Mayhem and Madness" on Netflix. I don't even want to discuss the story, because spoilers, but I will say that there's no good guy. None of them. And it's wildly entertaining. A truly phenomenal piece of documentary filmmaking. Oh, and when you've finished watching it, a complementary article with some extra detail: Tiger King Joe Exotic and His American Animals.
