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.
