The Weekly Substandard | A nerdcast on movies and pop-culture
About This Show
Each week geek out with Victorino Matus, Jonathan V. Last and Sonny Bunch for a nerdcast on movies and pop-culture.
The genesis for this podcast started way back in 2002 with Jonathan's seminal essay, The Case For the Empire: http://tws.io/casefortheempire.
The debate continues today with The Weekly Substandard podcast.

This shouldn't be nearly as entertaining as it is.
I didn't have high hopes for listening to three writers for political magazines talking about pop culture. I was wrong: this podcast is spectacular. The hosts have a rare chemistry that compels you to enjoy whatever random topic they're discussing. It's like the Remnant, but for people who prefer joking about movies more than the inevitable decline of western civilization.

Love this show
It starts out pretty slow when you are listening to weekend plans waiting for the movie reviews but once you get to know the personalities and quirks it works. The opinions strong and detailed so it is easy to get engaged.
