I discuss the experimental evidence for and theoretical interpretation of the new mesons and baryons with two heavy quarks. These include doubly-heavy baryons, exotic hadronic quarkonia and most recently a manifestly exotic pentaquark-like doubly heavy baryon with a minimal quark content uudc discovered by LHCb, whose mass, decay mode and width are in agreement with a prediction based on a physical picture of a deuteron-like Σc D "hadronic molecule".
