Brendan, Bret, and Matt Lieb are out this week (illnesses and extenuating circumstances, couldn’t be helped), but in their place we’ve got Laremy Legel and Ashley Burns joining via Skype. As well as SO MUCH #CONTENT. Turns out, when Matt isn’t around to discuss his sex life, you go deep into the actual Issues of the Day. I’m on the fence about whether this is a good thing. The Ant-Man spoilers are very light, but if you want to avoid them completely, skip from the 27-minutes mark to 34 and you’ll miss everything.

45:35: Peter Berg and Caitlyn Jenner
50:05: We try to parse my new favorite RottenTomatoes pull quote. “I’m not sure who’s most responsible for Trainwreck’s ultimate timidity, for the mordant ribaldry evinced in the first half hour or so inexorably oozing into couple-y goo.”
