Daft Punk, Odesza, Yuna, Beyonce, anything remixed, and then whatever Pandora tells me is similar to that. Podcasts: OMFG, Another Round, Nerdist, Dinner Party Download, Invisibilia, 99% Invisible, Zaki's Corner and his Movie Film Podcast with Brian Hall.
Strong female leads, binge-inducing plot lines, complex characters in dire situations. The Americans, The Leftovers, Man in the High Castle, How to Get Away with Murder, and one day I watched all of Jane the Virgin.
"Good Muslim, Bad Muslim" by Mahmood Mamdani, "The Iranians" by Sandra Mackey and Scott Harrop, "Radical Love" by Taz Ahmed, "Bad Feminist" by Roxanne Gay, "The End of Men" by Hanna Rosin. I do read fiction: "A Brief History of Seven Killings" by Marlon James, and "Harry Potter" for forever. (Prisoner of Azkaban is the best one.)
