Coming Soon‘s Ed Douglas and I recorded two installments a couple of hours ago for Oscar Poker #98, but the second was much better so I threw out installment #1.

We went for a good hour and covered most of the top Oscar contenders as they currently stand. Here’s a stand-alone mp3 link.

The big boxoffice story of the weekend, Douglas said, is that in its second weekend Argo only dropped about 15%. That means word-of-mouth has caught on big-time.
