This week, we welcome both our regular contributors on movies, Jacqueline Soller and Charles Hinshaw, for an extended conversation about the Academy Award nominations that were announced this week for films released in 2017. Additionally, we’ll be discussing some of our own film favorites from 2017. Additionally, we hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel, with his thoughts on how any Democrat considering a run for President in 2020 might do well to consider supporting the legalization of marijuana; we hear from a woman named Emily, who shares how she started running and the experience of running with her children; and we take an exclusive early listen to a performance by dream-pop songstress Shana Falana from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
