For a special episode marking a year since our hosts voices blessed your little ears we felt it appropriate to spend an inordinate amount of time on follow up and more Movie Pass shenanigans. Along the way we touch on English dryers, more Apple OS stuff, and some stuff we dug up from the archives!

This week our unconquerable hosts cover the newest changes made to Movie Pass in what is turning into a serialized universe of stories all to its own. From there we have the return of Tolkien Corner with all new news from the Middle Earth. Then we springboard into the new DC streaming app. Finally we contemplate the ethics of the new Google Duplex demo that’s sure to turn our world into a hellish landscape if gone unchecked.

This week we do a lot of complaining. First off Apple can’t seem to make a podcast app, Charlie has to walk Dan off a ledge over MoviePass changes, and finally we have some feelings about the newest Venom trailer.
