For the first time in 220 episodes, we bring you a two-hander that’s just Jason and Karl … and really, judging by Karl’s attentiveness, you might suspect that sometimes it’s just Jason. Nevertheless, we warmly welcome you to Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 225. In this show, you’ll get two Feature Reviews of Gold and The Founder. Yeah, this episode is more laid back, but Jay reveals more info about the forthcoming Movie Podcast Network changes!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Geek Cast Ry — along with frequent guests. We give you our verdicts on at least one new movie release from the current year that’s currently playing in theaters, as well as several mini reviews of whatever we’ve been watching lately. New episodes release every single week!
