No guest this week, as we’re adjusting the format — we’ll continue to do longer episodes with a guest every other week, but we’ll alternate with shorter, just-me episodes, as now that people are gradually re-entering society, I have less time to edit the longer episodes, and I have fewer guests who are stuck at home dying to talk about movies.
