I enjoyed this podcast since I am trying to get a handle on the script publishing business: those who sell scripts; whether scripts are moving to downloads (printed vs. PDF) ; and most importantly, how most script publishing companies print, store (warehouse) and distribute (fulfill) their orders for scripts. Do they manufacture (print ) the scripts themselves? Do they outsource fulfillment and distribution? Any information you can give would be helpful.
