We've taken the rails and we've thrown them so far away that we may never find them again! Justin is taking a week off, so I simply opened the floodgates and invited any and every show from the #MoviePodSquad that was available for recording and they have answered the call! Tonight we are joined by Chris from the More Gooder Than Podcast, Dave and Jay from the Super Movie Bros pod, Shampu from Buds, Beers, Brutality & Fuzzy D from Who Spikes the Puns!
Aside from mainstays such as Thumbs of the Week and What're You Drinkin', we had a plethora of teasers drop during the Super Bowl last night for films coming all throughout 2017. So sit back and enjoy an extended edition of Epic Previews tonight, with discussions about Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, A Cure for Wellness, Baywatch, Ghost in the Shell, Life, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Logan, The Fate of the Furious, Transformers: The Last Knight, and one of our favorite shows from 2016, Stranger Things season 2!
I had an absolute blast recording with all of these guys, and we did record quite a bit more audio, but to keep the show from spilling into 2-1/2 hours I decided to save the AMA we mention during the recording for a later date. Thank you so much for listening! We'll see you at the movies!!

Friends of the Show
We'd like to give a huge shout-out for a lot of the shows we're proud to call friends, and that we're proud to call ourselves fans of. We especially have to thank our brothers in Perth, Paul & Wayne of The Countdown Movie & TV reviews, who have opened us up to a huge audience halfway across the world. Particular thanks to Paul who has been an amazing friend and has been infinitely helpful in terms of getting honest feedback on the evolution of the show. A huge thank you to Emily from The Story Behind podcast, whose support and friendship have kept this show alive through some of its darkest days. A huge thank you to some of our biggest podcasting friends, from Mr. X at the Angry Old Man, Shane from Now That I'm Older, David from The Unwritable Rant, Adam from Everyone Has a Podcast, Ro from the World of Ro, the entire crew at Afterburn 739, Mat at the One Word, Go! show, Justin from So I Married a Movie Geek, and Deana from the Twisted Philly podcast. We're probably forgetting someone, so thank you to ALL of you! We truly do love and appreciate your support.
We also have to give a huge shout out to #PodernFamily for helping to increase our exposure, and safe to say without it we wouldn't have met a lot of the podcasters and fans we're proud to call friends. We also want to give a huge shout out to the #MoviePodSquad, a group of movie podcasters in the #PodernFamily who have come together for our mutual love of film. Look for even more crossovers and fun events with these and other great podcasters soon!
