We've got Ricky, April and Alonso in the studio this week, along with special guest Oliver Wang. Like Ricky, Oliver is a fellow DJ, and he also hosts the brilliant music podcast Heat Rocks on Maximum Fun, alongside friend of the show Morgan Rhodes.

April tells us about her feminist ghost hunting pilot; Alonso's excited about the BBQ chicken tenders at McDonald's; Oliver is stoked to be a guest for the first time on WSY and Ricky's reminded of his childhood after watching the Canelo fight and going to a party where Los Angeles Plays Itself played in the background.

Plus, music scholar Oliver Wang outs himself as an unabashed Predator fan, who's seen every single Predator movie. Will he be one of the few (only?!) fans of this franchise that doesn't pan the film? Find out.

In the news, Gael Garcia Bernal wants to know why there aren't more US-born LatinX directors, Yacht Captain Dennis Davers breaks his silence about what he thinks happened the night Natalie Woods drowned, and Christopher Nolan and Paul Thomas Anderson have teamed up to demand TV manufacturers up their TV-settings game for better movie watching experiences at home.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - The Thing
April - Life Itself (Note: this is April's joke pick), and her real pick is Mandy
Alonso - Lizzie
Oliver - Chan Is Missing

Next week we're discussing The Sisters Brothers with Inkoo Kang
