John and Craig brainstorm How Would This Be A Movie, looking at articles featuring kangaroo feuds in Australia, squatters in the Hamptons, and ghost historians in Palestine. Plus a romance between the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion.
We also cover the potential IATSE strike, Tudum Day, and managing money.
In our bonus segment for premium members, John and Megana defend sweater weather as Craig decries the commercialization of autumn and other things he blames on millennials.
