Write Your Screenplay Podcast & Transcripts

On this podcast, rather than reviewing movies “two thumbs up, two thumbs down, loved it or hated it,” Award Winning Screenwriter Jacob Krueger shows you what you can learn from them as screenwriters. We look at good movies, bad movies, movies that we loved, and movies that we hated.
