Though Jason is merely a ghost in a shell, we’re starting to ramp up to full speed again here on Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 234, where your four favorite hosts bring you three Feature Reviews of Ghost in the Shell and The Shack and an actual, for real review this time of CHiPs (Karl saw it). In this episode you’ll hear a pretty good debate about animated feature film storytelling and a decent debate about the possible underwhelming nature of “Ghost in the Shell.” Join us!
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!
— Jason still recovering from open-heart surgery and podcasting from his mom’s attic in Moundsville, WV
— Karl published in his favorite tech magazine, Sound and Vision
— Ryan asks for Karl’s help in selecting new headphones
— Ryan is getting another tattoo
— In case you missed it, last week Andy hosted MPW.
— And we hope you didn’t miss Ep. 232: Movie Podcast Women, because it is definitely a must-listen (more so than Andy’s show…).
