Griffin and David smiling and sitting across from one another, each wearing headphones and sitting in front of a microphone.

The old days, recording in a broom closet. No guests shown, as the hosts plus a guest would not leave enough space to also fit the camera.

The hosts frequently invite friends, writers, artists, entertainers, and others who are enthusiastic to talk about films to be featured guests on episodes of the podcast. Alphabetically, the following people have made guest appearances on Blank Check.
