    Reviews Redux

    This week, Rob was unfortunately unavailable and so the discussion turned to movies Caleb made Craig watch. Come listen in as the two of them discuss 2015's "Spotlight" and 1998's "Smoke Signals". What made these movies great? What did our hosts take away from them? Are there any parallels to make between the 2 movies or is it literally just the movies that were watched most recently?

    A mild warning - this episode is a bit more somber than the usual 'Strikes Our Fancy' episode. Based on the subject matter of the movies in question, there is talk of abuse throughout the episode. Listener discretion advised.
