This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Ryan McQuade joins Brendan to discuss King Richard, starring Will Smith, as well as the musical tick, tick…BOOM!, starring Andrew Garfield. Plus, a few brief thoughts on The Humans and Rocky IV: Rocky vs. Drago.

Big thanks to Ryan for filling in for JD this week. As always he brings an energy to the podcast that is contagious and fun. His presence is also appropriate given the awards buzz around King Richard and tick, tick…BOOM!, and how both films feature performances that are likely to be nominated. Our overall discussion isn’t awards-themed, but it’s always nice to hear Ryan’s perspective on the matter.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!
