The REAL 13 Nights of Halloween

This year, the gentlemen at 17 Waverly Podcast decided to take the Halloween programming schedule into our OWN hands. For years we’ve complained about the many ‘# nights of Halloween’ lists where most of the movies suggested have no real connection to the holiday. This year we decided to create a list of our own that we think is THE list for anyone that loves Halloween or is looking to get in the mood. While this list may change over time with the addition of newer moves, we believe this is currently the strongest list of movies to get anyone in the halloween spirit. Listen to our latest podcast episode ‘Halloween Hijinks Part 1’ for an explanation of our first 4 movies on this list. If you think we overlooked any movies or if you think a movie we have does not belong, let us know in the comments or on twitter! 17 Waverly Podcast 13 Nights of Halloween schedule: The Craft (1996) – Oct. 19 Casper (1995) – Oct. 20 Scream – Oct. 21 …

Episode 67 – Toxicity Report

Welcome BACK to the couch. After a week of seeing the twitterverse AFLAME with the Jada and Will drama, we decided to give our two cents on the entire ENTANGLEMENT. As we are a film and television podcast we figured this was a fantastic opportunity to segue into an episode all about movies highlighting toxic relationships because- why not? Join us as we discuss 500 Days of Summer (2009) starring Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel (0:22:45), The Breakup (2006) starring Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn (0:43:00), and a cinema classic Gone With the Wind (1939) starring Vivien Lee and Clark Gable (01:03:30). Join us for that and much more!

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 60 – A Pod Far Far Away

We did it folks, episode 60! Quite the accomplishment considering we were very convinced this would last only a month at inception. Join us as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Empire Strikes Back” with (yet another) sloppy discussion of the Star Wars franchise. Join us as we tackle topics like why Darth Vader ain’t shit, why adults pushing 40 should still see the animated Clone Wars series targeted for kids, and the future of the franchise at Disney+. Lastly, the Snyder Cut is a go at HBOMax, (01:04:38) so course we wrap with our two cents on that.
