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.

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!

The Pod Appreciates: Tiger King

Welcome everyone for another seemingly RARE installment of ‘The Pod Appreciates’ series here at the 17 Waverly Podcast! We have decided that this episode will focus on the very popular Netflix doc-series titled ‘Tiger King’. Join us as we break down the show by each episode and try to discuss each insane plot twist as it happens in order. Do we think Joe Exotic is a good guy? Did Carole Baskin kill her husband? Who should play these characters in a movie? We discuss all that and more!

Episode 57 – The Temple of Corona

What day is it? What time is it? Who knows at this point, all we know is that its time hang out on the couch for an hour and chill w us here at the 17 Waverly Pod.

We start by revisiting the classic ‘Indiana Jones’ movies (00:11.30), we then discussed the need for Hollywood to bring back movies with a rag tag kid cast (00:18:00), movie theaters dying and our ideas for saving them (00:43:30), and much more! 

Episode 56 – The Quarantine Pod

So take a pinch of our usual inconsistency and a gallon of pandemic and you have our most recent excuse for the hiatus! However, we are finally back on the couch in the midst of this nonsense to do our best to provide an hour of distraction – and fail. Join us as we panic with you about this virus, discuss a few of our favorite apocalypse films (0:26:30), the hilarious Netflix reality show ‘the Circle’ (0:43:00), Disney’s ‘Onward’ review (0:51:45), and then closing with a few recommendations for what to watch while you are all stuck at home!

We finish this week’s episode by giving our thoughts on the recent images that leaked of the new Batman suit from the upcoming Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson. Come join us on the couch, you wont regret it!

Episode 54 – The Love Pod

Welcome all you lovebirds to the LOVE pod! Valentine’s Day was recently so we decided that in honor of the holiday we would have a special episode all about ‘Amor’. We are on the couch as per usual and we are watching one of our favorite romantic comedies, ‘The Wedding Singer’. In today’s episode we get into what our favorite rom-coms are and who we think are the g.o.a.t. rom-com actors.
