Used to be good but now the hosts clearly don't enjoy this show anymore. Tip, if you host a fans show, fans don't want to hear two people slag the show off for an hour!

good discussion, BUT so annoying with so many "like" interruptions in EVERY sentence. I wish they would listen to what their use of this completely useless word is and practice eliminating it. it cost them my listenership.

If you enjoy A Cast of Kings Podcast with Joanna Robinson and David Chen, you'll love this! The wonderful dynamic duo is back to discuss the ins and outs of all things Westworld. The format starts out a bit different than ACoK, and there are theories discussed mostly at the end (it's clearly notated when a theory will be discussed), but I think for a show like Westworld it helps to unpack the many intricacies and layers in a simple, fun, and understandable format. Overall, this is a very enjoyable and easy podcast to listen to about a complex show!
