Loving the Essentials

I’m enjoying the essentials discussions and looking forward to the upcoming ones. Way to make the best out of these trying times, keep up the great work!

Show notes, please!

If a listener has never heard the title of a movie mentioned in conversation among people who are so intimately familiar, it is not easy to catch enough to go on. I have spent half the morning trying to find a Brazilian movie that played at Sundance whose title I could not catch or spell.

I expected more

I’m surprised this has the Vanity Fair stamp. The hosts are vapid. If I had a dollar for every time they said, “like” or “um”, I’d outgross Age of Ultron.
