Episode 245: News Show to June 21, 2015

Listen Now:


One would assume that after an extra week long hiatus, the news cycle would be extra heavy but alas, not too many new projects to report on this week. That said, Shannon and Marina still have updates on projects we're tracking, a few new trailers and lots of TV talk.

A quick note: the audio in the first 20 minutes is not the best as we had some connection problems. The show is back to normal after the 25 minute mark.
