Show Notes

In which we talk about how companies have to deal with the inherent leak-ability of digital media, especially things like movie trailers. How should Marvel respond to whoever leaked the first Age of Ultron trailer? Stephen and Chris have a friendly disagreement about the best way to respond to this kind of thing.

Today’s blooper section is… amazing.

Alternate title we ultimately decided not to foist upon you: MPAAwful. You can thank Stephen for that one (as well as the much better actual title!)
