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 Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
It’s a good ol’ fashioned grab-bag this week as we prepare for the launch of Japanimation Station Season 3 tomorrow night, July 4th, with the first episode of The Classic Adventures of Lupin the 3rd – shameless plug, yes, but you should totally listen to this new season! Here on The Weekly Stuff, Jonathan talks about going through all the Indiana Jones movies for The Weekly Stuff Wordcast, and we chat about the disastrous new movie, Dial of Destiny. Sean gives first impressions of Final Fantasy XVI and gives continued thoughts on Blizzard’s Diablo IV, while Jonathan talks about getting back into The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and we also go off the beaten track for an exploration of how out-of-control movie budgets have become, and why Sean is obsessed with Ultraman.
