Assembly of Geeks: What’s Happening Podcast Update is kind of optional but does give listeners a heads up that things are changing. Scott and Matt talk about the new podcasts coming to the site and how things will be changing or staying the same.

Awards Chatter: Michael Keaton episode covers how he got into acting, his early roles, Beetlejuice, Batman and Birdman, and his latest film The Founder. Nice interview giving a peek inside Keaton’s head. Great one to check out.
