The Most Offensive Family-Friendly Podcast braves another discussion about race, immigration and other hot-button topics in Episode 226 of Movie Podcast Weekly. We know, we know… but we got word that some people found some of the remarks made during Episode 223 offensive, so we wanted to address it as our resident night manager of 7-Eleven oversaw the proceedings. We hope all will listen (especially those who found Ep. 223 offensive).
We also bring you the regular business of Feature Reviews. This week we review Lion (2017) and Rings (2017). Additionally, you’ll hear our thoughts on the biggest football game of the year and we define the meaning of the phrase “Revenge Netflix.” Join us, unless you’re … chicken.
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!
— Reflecting on the biggest football game of 2017
