PODCAST! Ep. 28.: Two weeks of devil dolls, tear-jerking toys, dogs and what a Chinese trade war could mean to the movies

In this episode, Karen Gordon, Liam Lacey, Kim Hughes, Thom Ernst, Bonnie Laufer and Jim Slotek talk about evil dolls - fictional ones like Chucky and Annabelle, and a real-life possessed Big Bird that Jim had to exorcise when it started talking to him in the middle of the night. (Thom and Bonnie kind of liked Chucky, by the way).

Toy Story 4 is a four-hankie ton of fun. Liam reviews a cool doc on service dogs and a Cannes winner about a mob-connected dog groomer, and wonders why his own pooch is so untalented.

And we talk about reports that Trump’s trade war with China could have severe repercussions for Hollywood’s bottom line and production pipeline.
