The Weekly Stuff Podcast #365 – Bowser’s Fury is Good, Joss Whedon & Gina Carano are Bad
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.
This week brought one great new video game in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury – a Nintendo Switch package including a Wii U classic and, in a wonderful surprise, a brand new 3D open-world Mario game – and two high-profile stories of bad behavior in Hollywood, with a number of accusations against Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon and Disney disinviting The Mandalorian co-star Gina Carano from future Star Wars productions after a series of anti-trans and anti-semitic posts. Today’s episode is primarily concerned with these dark news stories, and in the case of Carano, some of the terrible takes that have surfaced comparing, offensively, Carano’s firing to the dark days of the Hollywood blacklist. Sean also talks about finishing Yakuza 6 – and his entire journey with Kazuma Kiryu over the last three years – and we continue to talk incessantly about the wonders (and dangers?) of Genshin Impact.
