This week we are not talking about “A” suicide squad, we’re talking about “THE” Suicide Squad. And joining our discussion, all the way from Australia, is author, screenwriter, and film curator Maria Lewis. We also answer a question from the ‘Hotline’ about favorite side characters in movies. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Marvel pays its writers diddly-squat for storylines adapted into movies and Quentin Tarantino reveals a disturbing tidbit about his childhood.
