Episode Info:


For February 2020 Daniel and Melvin decided to talk about a hodgepodge of topics. In fact, this might be their most loose and casual episode to date. For starters, what begins as a discussion of Bob Iger’s recent choice to step down as CEO of Disney goes straight into a discussion on the Coronavirus and how COVID-19 has been affecting the film industry at large.

Then they swing headfirst into a discussion over Disney Plus. For the foreseeable future, Bob Iger will oversee Disney Plus’s development, and to put things in perspective Daniel and Melvin discuss their experience with Disney Plus, how it’s fought to differentiate itself from the competition, and what sort of changes may happen in the months to come.

They also take some time to discuss a potential Writers Strike that may hit the film industry in the near future, and look back to the writer’s strike of 2007 for some guidance on what to expect from such an event.

And finally, because Melvin's been bugging Daniel about it for so long, they're going to talk about Quibi. What’s Quibi, you might ask? Just the strangest upcoming streaming service you’ve never heard of, and they're here to tell you about its bizarrely fascinating mission to be the most interesting yet miscalculated app to join the streaming wars!
