Blank Check with Griffin and David (@blankcheckpod on Twitter) is a film podcast where #TheTwoFriends, Griffin Newman and David Sims, examine the filmographies of famous directors and determine the moment when they got a "Blank Check". This is a wiki for information on the hosts, producers, Benducers, inside jokes, director discussions and featured guests.

March Madness 2020 picked a winner: Robert Zemeckis takes the championship! In the Oscars versus the Razzies matchups this year, the Oscar side won convincingly. The sizable and varied miniseries on Zemeckis, Podcast Away, has now begun!
