Episode 72 – The Not So Lost Episode

Welcome back everyone! So as we’ve mentioned before, we had an episode of the pod that was recorded MONTHS ago but we thought was lost due to technical issues. In a fortunate turn of events, we were able to salvage the episode and give it to you all! In this episode, we discussed James Cameron’s ‘The Terminator’ franchise in all good, bad, and ugly glory. Join us for that and much more! Listen here: You can also stream the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

Episode 66 – The Mutant Pod

It is officially TWENTY years since the release of the first X-Men film; the spark that would begin the modern comic book era (don’t @ us). To celebrate we are revisiting the original trilogy (in our typical ‘all over the place’ fashion). Join us and our special guest host, Mags, as we talk about the three movies, comment on the later reboot films (its unavoidable), and give our two cents on the future of the X-Men within the MCU.  Stream the episode on Spotify below, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

Episode 64 – Big Pussy Gets Popped

We are back, and this week we are once again giving you an episode that has absolutely nothing to do with what we said last week. That’s the couch for you! On this special episode we dive into HBO’s The Sopranos. Join us as we hit season highlights, episodes we considered series defining, the controversial?, epic?, perfect? series finale, and more of Gab’s existential rants inspired by one of the best shows in television history. Stream the episode on Spotify below, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

Episode 58 – Futurology

We’re back on the couch and at this point, we have assumed that there is going to be some sort of hiatus between every episode since we have no idea what we are doing! Anyway, on this installment of the 17 Waverly Podcast we are here going into a deep discussion into Steven Spielberg’s ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy. We start the episode dissecting the 3 movies and our favorite characters/moments, then we get into a time travel style conversation and even ask what moments in time we would go back and change. We then round off our episode with some recommendations of movies like ‘Snowpiercer’, ‘Free Solo’, and ‘Ex-Machina’. All that and much more, so come join us!
