The Weekly Stuff Podcast #314 – Netflix’s Witcher, Game Delays, Byleth in Smash Bros & More!


It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

Jonathan’s just returned from his three-week vacation in Japan, and while we’ll have lots about that trip on next week’s episode, today’s podcast is a quick catch-up, as Sean shares what he’s been up to the last few weeks, including a review of Netflix’s surprisingly good Witcher series. Then we cover some recent gaming news, including delays for major games like Cyberpunk 2077, Avengers, and Final Fantasy VII Remake, and this week’s Nintendo Direct unveiling Byleth in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. And finally, we mercilessly make fun of Sony’s Morbius trailer, the unholy real-life manifestation of a joke we made on the podcast way back in 2012. 

Enjoy!

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #313 – The Best (and Most Important) Video Games of the Decade, 2010-2019


It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

Today is the third and final part of our three-part podcast series celebrating the best of the decade, as we look at the best and most significant Video Games of the 2010s. One of the primary subjects of our podcast throughout this decade, we’ve got a lot of thoughts on which games most shaped the past ten years, and we’ve divided our discussion into two segments: First, our respective lists of the Top 10 Video Games of the 2010s, with each host delivering their own thoughts on which games were subjectively the ‘best’ from the past 10 years. Second, we put our heads together to determine which were the most important and influential games from the 2010s – putting quality aside, which games had the greatest impact on the industry, the art form, and the shape of video games to come? We talk through, debate, and collectively create a list of the 10 most important games from the past 10 years, in one of the most enjoyable and intellectually engaging conversations we’ve ever had. 

Enjoy!

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #312 – Sean’s Anime Episode! The Best Anime of the Decade, 2010-2019


It’s time for a new year of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link. 

For our first show of 2020, we’re continuing our three-part podcast series celebrating the best of the decade that was the 2010s. This week, it’s all anime (and all Sean) all the time, as Sean, our podcast’s resident prolific anime viewer, tells us about the 50 best animated shows from Japan he watched these past ten years. There’s a detailed Top 10 and then a slightly-less-detailed list of 40 honorable mentions, so if you’re looking for some anime recommendations, there’s a solid decade’s worth to keep you busy here! And before that, Jonathan counts down his list of the Top 10 Live Action shows from the past decade, giving us one last chance to talk about the Twin Peaks revival, Parks and Recreation, the Steven Moffat years of Doctor Who, and more. 

Enjoy, and come back next week as we count down the best Video Games of the 2010s!
