John and Craig follow up and give updates on the many topics we’ve been talking about the past few weeks, including police on screen, assistant pay, short seasons and restarting production.
We also hear from a past Three-Page participant on their experience post-challenge and cover highlights from the WGA’s Inclusion and Equity report.
In our bonus segment for premium members, we’ll be talking about computers: what we’re using, and what we’d like to see.
