247: Why Netflix Would Buy AMC (and why that's important)

The streaming wars have begun. Disney has committed to it. Amazon and Apple are dabbling in it. But Netflix owns it. An AMC purchase (who might run out of cash by the end of the year) could be how it levels up.

In other news, Facebook is the most distrusted social media platform (go figure), and Yelp adds a new "racist behavior exists here" component (which could be good but could also go wildly wrong).

Robert has a new Quibi update (it's not good for Quibi) and raves (and rants) about Kraft's new commercial.

Joe raves about Amazon's new print catalog and believes Juggernaut has it figured out when it comes to email newsletters.
