John and Craig talk about readers — both the friends you’d ask to look at your draft and the folks who professionally analyze scripts. They cover unions, state laws, and why companies should value good coverage.
We also follow up on how to credit improv in scripts, share #PayUpHollywood feedback, and explain if/come deals.
Stay tuned for our bonus segment, when John and Craig discuss their personal and general thoughts on baldness.
