Jon Laubinger returns to the show to talk about the March 2021 announcements and especially the World of Wong Kar Wai set. Longtime listeners will remember that Jon predicted the set years ago and it has finally come to fruition. We also get into some of the controversies around the release and whether that tempers our excitement. We talk at length about Ashley Clark being hired as Curational Director and what that means for the label going forward. Finally, we talk about upcoming and rumored releases including Mirror, Demonlover, Ikarie XB-1, Mississippi Masala and Flowers of Shanghai.
