On This Week’s Show:

Good News/Bad News [Beginning – 22:45]: It was a slow week with the Oscars dominating, but Kevin and I manage to find some things that made us joyous and a few things that made us cover our ears and pretend we weren’t listening.

Soft Core Comedy [22:45 – 39:25]: Production Assistant and aspiring writer/director Isaiah Lester talks on hard work, not making your contacts look like idiots, and the importance of finding out where a job is for soft core porn before you sign on.

Getting Organized [39:25 – The End]: A former Bad Robot assistant, Adam Gaines, speaks on his unique method of getting the right people to pay attention to his writing work and the lessons of becoming a script coordinator for Fringe.
