Part 2 of our first foray into discussing Steven Spielberg! We split the episode into two parts, the second one here focusing on the new release, Ready Player One! If you missed our episode on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, you can find that in your podcast feed or right here! I didn’t enjoy Ready Player One, but I’m kind of alone on this one. Check out our discussion for more.
