Steven Wahl and Chandler Nunnally love movies!

This week on Act 3, we prepare for the forthcoming reopening of major movie chains and take a look at how they plan to pull it off safely. Back at home, Peacock and AppleTV+ are making huge deals in order to win the streaming wars.

Will this new programming make their services a must-have? Then, Treezy from the Kinda Movie Critics podcast joins Chandler to review "An American Pickle", the latest film from Seth Rogen. This film is about a man who survives for a hundred years after being preserved in pickle brine.
