To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (August 17): If you loved Netflix’s recent original rom-com Set It Up and you’re craving more, good news — To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is here to fill that void.

Listen online, or subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
Ariana Grande, Sweetener: Ariana Grande returned to the spotlight in a major way this summer after a quiet start to the year, and the singles off her upcoming fourth album are just the beginning.

Magic for Humans (August 17): If you love magician David Blaine’s stunts but are looking for something a little more light-hearted, Netflix’s new original street-magic special will be right up your alley. TV personality Justin Willman (whom you might recognize from the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars) takes to the streets and promises no camera tricks and no editing — just real magic and real people. Check it out on Netflix on Friday, August 17.
