The Weekly Stuff Podcast #320 – Coronavirus Shut-in Special! (And Doctor Who Series 12 Review)

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. 

The world is on fire, but the podcast must go on! With Jonathan back in Colorado for the long haul of social distancing, he and Sean get together to talk about what life has been like as Coronavirus hit the United States in full, affecting both of our professions and keeping us at home for the foreseeable future. It’s a crazy time, with all sorts of cancellations and social disruptions, but we also find some time to talk about recent games we’ve been playing, including Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Yakuza 4, and discuss Kotaku’s recent report about continued crunch at NaughtyDog during production of The Last of Us Part II. And for our big topic, we dive deep with Series 12 of Doctor Who, which we didn’t review week to week this year – because Chris Chibnall’s incarnation of the show is, you know, terrible – but hopefully make up for in this extra-long discussion of a show that might be dying a slow, painful death right before our eyes. Something the rest of us can hopefully avoid if we stay at home, wash our hands, and don’t attend any large gatherings! 

Enjoy, and stay safe out there!
