In this episode of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s newest podcast, Go Atlanta, entertainment reporter Rodney Ho talks about the writers strike and how much it could impact TV and film production here in Georgia. Plus, another immersive experience based on Lego sculptures and an upcoming immersive experience of “The Little Mermaid” that is coming to Dunwoody. He’ll also tell you about Seal’s show at the Fox Theater this weekend.

The Spring Dining Guide is out now, and this season we focus on the best of baking in Atlanta. Ligaya Figueras and Yvonne Zusel share some of their favorite picks. Hear about the new novel culinary experience called the Atlanta Test Kitchen.

Arts and entertainment editor Shane Harrison gets you ready for this year’s Shaky Knees Festival, previews what’s coming up in Friday’s Go Guide section, and introduces you to the pet of the week.
