[ 0:56:07 ] V. EPISODE 200 – THE MAIN EVENT: – In 2011, Jason and his horror podcasting cohort, BillChete, came up with the format to Jason’s show, The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast. Each host would assign a movie for another host to watch and review. Then we’d meet together on the podcast and discuss what we had watched. Well, the MPW listenership requested that we adopt this TWHMP, round-robin format for our 200th episode, except in this case, each host assigned a movie to each of the other hosts, totaling 15 bonus reviews. Enjoy!
