And we’re back. The Now Conspiring hiatus is over, and we have a lot to talk about, like how much we like (and dislike) some recent movies and TV shows. Arrival, Moana, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are all highlights, but as always, Sam talks about something I’ve already forgotten about.

This week on the podcast, I had a hearty chat about new trailers (Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, and Red Dead Redemption2). Plus, we used Show & Tell to talk about The Accountant, Mascots, The Thing, and more.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Are you excited for the Nintendo Switch, and if so, what are the games you think should be made for this? (Kayla: design your own!)
This week on Now Conspiring, Jon is joined by the infamous Now Conspirer to review Luke Cage, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and the inclusion of Groupon product placement in indie podcast episodes. And as always, we read your comments and answer your questions from last week’s show before talking about the new movies coming out next week.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: VOTE! If the only Presidential candidates were Now Conspiring hosts, who would you vote for? Here are the candidates:
Hey conspiracy cats, this week we review The Magnificent Seven, Storks, and Queen of Katwe. But honestly, we spend most of our time talking about…mansplaining? The internet? Our patronuses? Look, you listen to this podcast for a reason, and Dumbledore help us, we don’t know exactly what that reason really is.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: How would you describe yourself using three fictional characters?
Hey podcast friends, welcome to an all-new Now Conspiring. This week, we review Snowden, the new Oliver Stone film about, you guessed it, political intrigue at the turn of the 21st Century. Also, we get into some Show & Tell and talk about Fall movies we’re looking forward to before jumping into your feedback from last week’s episode.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What’s an embarrassing or funny/weird thing you’ve experienced or witnessed at a movie theater?
This week on the podcast, we reviewed the first Tom Hanks/Clint Eastwood collaboration movie, Sully. Plus, we did another round of “Show and Tell,” the segment where we go into depth about what we’ve been watching/reading/doing this week.
