David Sims of the Atlantic and the Blank Check podcast joins Alison to talk Noah Baumbach’s latest. While Matt is off on paternity leave, this episode of Filmspotting: Streaming Video Unit turns the responsibility for picking the main review to our guest host, who opts for the Netflix original movie THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES (NEW AND SELECTED). Then, in honor of the complicated relationship between the half-siblings played by Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller in the film, they offer up some streaming recs about what happens when brothers grow up.

This episode of Filmspotting: SVU is brought to you by Tribeca Shortlist and Hello Fresh.
