Scriptnotes Podcast

John August and Craig Mazin

Screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin discuss screenwriting and related topics in the film and television industry, everything from getting stuff written to the vagaries of copyright and work-for-hire law.


Special guest Irene Turner joins Craig and John for a new round of "How Would This Be a Movie?" In this episode, we look at Jake Halpern's article on Canada-bound refugees, Amy Krouse Rosenthal's moving personal ad for her husband, and the porn-filled saga of Prenda Law. Irene's latest film, The Most Hated Woman in America, debuts March 24th on Netflix. Stay tuned after the closing credits for a bonus segment from the new rom-com podcast You Had Us at Hello by Tess Morris and Billy Mernit.
