Welcome back to your guide to finding out what’s new online. Every week, we put together a podcast that lets you know what’s been added to services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. The audio is about a minute or two long. 

Judd Apatow is virtually a household name. If his name isn’t known, his work definitely is, with hits like “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Knocked Up” and “Girls” on HBO. After a quarter century, Apatow puts himself back in the spotlight by performing an hour-long comedy special. “Judd Apatow: The Return” was just added to Netflix. 

Since you’re reading this, let’s give you some information not found in the excellent podcast below. A report from Bloomberg says Netflix is looking into a choose-your-own-adventure show for adults. The streaming service already has similar programming for children like “Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale.” That would mean the viewer can choose how the story will progress with different choices leading to different storylines.
