Bob and Dan Cast

Bob and Dan Cast is a recorded conversation between two men that should have better things to do with their time. After languishing in the world of academia, both left their Illinois homes and went to opposite coasts to pursue degrees in film. Having achieved said degrees, they moved back to Illinois and promptly forgot about their Hollywood ambitions. This podcast is the stopgap between what they want to do and the current reality in which they live. Dan is pretty sure he would be some kind of monster without the creative outlet. Bob tends to agree.

With the competition now cut in half, we return to a trusty old challenge: Concepts and Content. Only it’s a little bit different this week: They can’t pull from the archives, and they don’t get to introduce the clip! This week’s coaching session takes on a different tone as Matt emphasizes marketability to the contestants. We’re taking your suggestions to heart so leave feedback on the Earwolf forums and join us tomorrow as we bring in guest judges Kulap Vilaysack and Jordan Morris.
