// Westworld S1 starts 10/2/16. Show is produced and hosted by Annalee Newitz, co-produced by Jennifer Hahn.

The Mr. Robot deep dive we deserve
Obviously S2 of Mr. Robot has brought out reviews from *everywhere*, but Ars seems on track with this pod. So far they've focused on individual ideas and grabbed plugged in guests; looking forward to more.

Not your run-of-the-mill recap pod
Mr. Robot staff writers and consultants actually talk on this pod, meaning there's more insight than in the average TV recap show. Also like how specific topics get airtime (aka Leon and comedic relief's value; mental health on TV) instead of strictly reacting to this week's episode.
