Episode notes

This episode marks an important but sad milestone: The show bids adieu to super producer Casey O’Brien. It’s a bittersweet moment for all, but for Drea in particular as she loses the one person at Maximum Film! Who truly *sees* her and her Minnesotan ways.

Ify, Drea and Alonso go down The Matrix Resurrections rabbit hole, and they like it! The fourth installment of this saga has proven to be divisive, but the Maximum Film! crew is Team Lana Wachowski all the way. The meta commentary? Into it! Neo and Tiffany? It works!

A word of caution for anyone who hasn’t yet seen the film, there are spoilers around 52 minutes into the episode, but listeners are given advance warning so fear not.
