In The Mail Bag:

  • Jesse from Michigan writes in "Hey Peter and the gang,  In reference to the Disney streaming service price in yesterday's episode and everyone thinking $6 was too low...  You realize the other streaming services have to license the content, which is part of the price that you're paying for as a customer. With Disney, they already own the content they're streaming. ANY revenue from the service is just gravy for them, they don't need to charge an arm and a leg. And at that price, who wouldn't subscribe?"
