Six years in the making… For longtime listeners who date back to our previous podcast, Considering the Sequels, the raging debate over the science of “Airport ’77” is put to rest. In Episode 215 of Movie Podcast Weekly, Jason, Karl and Ryan are joined by “a guy named Sandy,” as well as special guest, experimental physicist THE BRAIN (of The Sci-Fi Podcast). The Brain settles the debate, once and for all, and he does it with convincing authority.
Also in this episode, we bring you five Feature Reviews of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The Edge of Seventeen and Bleed for This and Shut In and The Monster. Join us. You’ll like it!
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!
