It’s Christmas, so John and Craig are exchanging the gift of answers, tackling listener questions on topics ranging from musical books to punch-up sessions.

December is also Black List season, and we’re happy to see some familiar names among the most-liked screenplays this year, including a Three Page Challenge entrant.

John’s long-in-the-works Karateka is finally in the App Store, ready for purchase, while Craig’s trailer for Identity Thief just dropped. So pour yourself a glass of Craig’s most despised holiday beverage and join us for episode 69 (tee-hee) of Scriptnotes, a podcast about screenwriting.
