Featuring a rundown of the day’s biggest headlines and a short guest interview, this is the best way to keep up with the news without it making you feel all dead inside. Viceland allows you to stream the latest episodes free on their website. It’s lit! #viennasausagechallenge

All four seasons of Orphan Black are streaming on Amazon free to Prime members, and the new (final) season airs on BBC America this weekend. Orphan Black is the kind of show that suffers from the interruption of a week between episodes, so this is great for a full weekend binge.
