USA Mknitter ,

Thanks for the inside and backside info

I have been a longtime fan of Ginger Zee (both with the Frozen podcasts and her participation with DWTS), and I found she had many of the same questions as I did of the Oscar voting procedures, selection process, etc. I greatly appreciated her review of the Octopus documentary, particularly as I love within 20 miles of the Pacific (central California coast). It was a great listen, especially since I had not watched any of the nominated movies or even the Oscar event itself. Thank you (and your team!) for putting this podcast together!

LONGSTON ,
