Craig and John plug a book by their very first sponsor and discuss elective brain surgery, before tackling an exhaustive but illuminating list of questions from listener Daniel Barkeley.

They’re residual questions about residuals, which seems very meta:

  • Do TV show creators get compensated for every rerun?
  • How do residuals differ from profit participations and foreign levies?
  • And where does new media fall in all of this?

Thirteen conversations about a few things, on episode sixteen of Scriptnotes.
