Dead dogs and bodies are the subjects of Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 205 (also known as “The Dog-Choking Episode”). In this show, three of your hosts, Jason, Andy and Ryan bring you Feature Reviews of Morgan and Krisha and In Order of Disappearance and Skiptrace and A Monster With a Thousand Heads. Karl is absent (so his co-hosts take the opportunity to make fun of him a lot).
But we have two other surprise segments in this episode: We also bring you our 2016 Summer Movie Postmortem and our Top 5 Movies That Make Us Want to Choke Puppies! [Note: Movie Podcast Weekly does not encourage or condone the choking of actual puppies.]
This episode is brought to you by Horse Corpse.
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Ryan — 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!
