Charles Holmes, Grace Spelman, and producer Lani Renaldo are back after sitting through the film adaptation of the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen (0:00). They break down the ridiculous plot (9:00) and discuss whether actor Ben Platt is a convincing teenager (22:00). Then, Charles is joined by writer Nate Rogers to talk about the issues musicians face in an extra-litigious, post–”Blurred Lines” world, where they can face lawsuits for accidental plagiarism or a number of other things (31:30).
