Streaming Wars – Alex, Bill, & Josh pick a streamer they think “won the month” based on new shows airing/upcoming shows announced etc. Bill & Alex both gave the month to Disney Plus on the back of its buzzy series like Shogun, X-Men ’97, Bluey, and Star Wars: The Bad Batch, and its successful Hulu integration.

Meanwhile, Josh gave it to Netflix, thanks to, among other things, the triumphant return of Is This Cake?.
