Craig and his podcast team give a superb review of the Westworld episodes; extremely entertaining and informative. The interviews with Ptolomy Slocum and Louis Herthum add insights on their careers and what it's like to play roles in the series. Lots of discussions on other movies and series like Black Mirror keep my interest while we all wait for Season 2 of Westworld. Keep up the great work! Thanks!
