Who Shot Ya?

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

Lots of feelings on this show! It's our 100th episode, we say goodbye to our beloved April Wolfe, and we're talking about the controversial new Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. Plus, we get a phone call from a mystery guest (it's Inkoo Kang). Alonso serenades April with his own version of 'Sometimes It Snows In April.' You get to hear Ify flip out in real time at the realization that he's going to miss the Hobbs & Shaw episode next week. And, as always, staff picks.

In news, Criterion releases the ultimate Godzilla collection, SAG-AFTRA hires an on-set "intimacy coordinator," and The Black List launches The Latinx List.

Staff Picks:

April - The Nightingale
Alonso - Ishiro Honda: A Life in Film, from Godzilla to Kurosawa
Drea - American Honey
Ify - Shin Godzilla and Godzilla (1998)

With Ify Nwadiwe, April Wolfe, Alonso Duralde, and Drea Clark.
