Episode notes

On today’s episode, we are talking about the phenomenal animated feature, The Mitchells vs. the Machines. And who better to chat about it than our guest, Simpsons writer and Round Springfield host Julia Prescott. Drea takes over hosting duties this week, which is why you might notice an uptick in “Charles Grodin-gushing” throughout the episode. We also answer a question from the ‘Hotline’ about the first movie we want to see in theaters when the pandemic is over. And, of course, we round things out with ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, the marvelous Charles Grodin passes away and the Dear Evan Hansen trailer drops online.

Staff Picks:
Drea – The Heartbreak Kid and The Great Muppet Caper
Alonso – Riders of Justice
Julia – Shiva Baby, Trolls World Tour, and Pink Skies Ahead

With Drea Clark, Alonso Duralde, and Julia Prescott.
