Welcome to Jurassic Park, Jurassic World and Movie Podcast Weekly! In this brachiosaur-sized show, all your MPW hosts assemble for the sole purpose of reviewing the Jurassic Park trilogy and the new film, Jurassic World. We have Jason, Andy, Karl and Ryan — the new guy — as well as a visit from Josh Ligairi, the distinguished gentleman who was recently named during an episode of The Film Vault Podcast as one of the Top 5 Up-and-Coming Directors! Congrats, Josh!
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. And we usually provide specialized genre recommendations. New episodes release every single Wednesday.
— Josh Ligairi is back for a visit!
