By way of “innerduction,” welcome to the arrival of Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 214. In this spicy and feisty installment, you’ll hear your favorite movie podcast hosts fight over a number of sacred cows. We bring you Feature Review of 2016’s highly celebrated new science fiction film, Arrival! And to help us with this important mission, we welcome two of the esteemed hosts of The Sci-Fi Podcast, STATION and her husband and co-pilot, Mattroid. Your intrepid MPW hosts also bicker a great deal about the proper pronunciation of “AT-ATs” and nearly come to blows over Harry Potter and other subjects that will probably irritate our listeners. So, join us!
