This week we have part 1 of a special 2-parter. In this installment, JD tries to persuade Yolanda and me that the finale was brilliant.
I was not as thrilled with this finale as it seems much, if not most of Westworld fandom was. Yolanda and Edu seem to have similar feelings. But JD is the one bright hope who may be able to turn us around. Will he succeed? This is our longest episode to date. So hunker down for our usual fun, philosophical and sometimes frantic debate.
Leave us a voicemail below or shoot us an email to let us know what you think–firstname.lastname@example.org.

About the Show
This is the unofficial, unruly and often uproariously funny podcast about the HBO hit series Westworld. In our discussion of Westworld, we can’t promise we’ll always “stay on target” (Star Wars tangents will be a-plenty). But we can promise you’ll always have a great time as four filmmaking friends–Ron, JD, Yolanda, and Edu–get deep, argue loud, throw shade on fan theories (and each other), and try to get to the bottom of who the hell this Man in Black is, what is Bernard up to, why Ford likes to hang out with creepy old dudes, and will Dolores ever gain her FREEEEEEDOM!
