With "Plan and Execution," the seventh installment of Better Call Saul's final season, the show has taken what may be its most shocking turn yet! So it's a good thing returning favorites Bekah and Jonathan Eaton are here to assist with the cleanup of this very messy situation, including the pressing matter of who, exactly, we're rooting for, as well as some half-baked predictions for the remainder of the story.

When Ronald and Steve—John's co-hosts on the long-running Movie Schmovie podcast—pop in for a chat, you can count on two things: pure unbridled chemistry and fart jokes. So with that as a promise and a warning, listen in as the guys dig into "Black and Blue," the fifth episode of Better Call Saul's final season.

She's back! Friend, podcaster, and generally creative person Bekah Eaton takes a break from several elaborate and vindictive schemes to discuss "Hit and Run," the fourth episode of Better Call Saul's sixth season, which is directed by Kim Wexler herself (aka Rhea Seehorn).

In a bold return to television recapping that some are calling irresponsible and others, merely unnecessary, John Walker hereby revives Saul Searching, the podcast all about AMC's beloved Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul. To help break down "Wine and Roses" and "Carrot and Stick," the first two episodes of BCS's final season, good friends Bekah and Jonathan Eaton pop in bearing insights and good cheer. It's a fun nerdy time for you.

Our first guest ever on Playing Records with John is back! It's Brad Armstrong and the occasion is the release of Heart Like a Sigil—his third solo album overall but his debut on Flower Moon Records, the label founded by frequent collaborator Maria Taylor. Songwriting shoptalk, recording secrets, and theories about the nature of the universe are contained herein. Proceed with caution! And for gosh sakes, don’t mess up the vibe.

Author and filmmaker Polly Schattel returns to talk about her second novel, the bracingly violent but enjoyably pulpy Shadowdays, available now from Journalstone Publishing. Find out why Polly decided to convert a shelved screenplay into a book, who Robert Longstreet would have played in the movie that never happened, and what makes troubled protagonist Melissa Sweet tick (in a "broken clock" kinda way).

Making a good third movie in a cinematic trilogy is hard enough, without it also being the third trilogy in a trio of trilogies! (The previous sentence was intended to weed out the faint of heart. Only the heroes are left. You may continue.) In this galaxy-spanning podcast, pop culture obsessives Bekah Eaton, Jonathan Eaton, John Walker, and Mike White discuss the third Star Wars trilogy, aka Episodes 7 though 9, aka The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker. These movies were all huge box office successes, but critical and fan opinion ranges from mixed to toxic. What does "new Star Wars" even mean in the age of the unending franchise? Should Palpatine have come back? And what's in the mystery box? All this and more.
