100th Episode Celebration – Our Favorite Movie Moments
Well, we made it to 100! Can you believe it? ... We're so proud that this day has arrived: This is our official 100th Why Watch That podcast episode. (We've actually done more, if you include our sneak peeks and the like, but who's counting?) In the podcasting world (and in our world, too), this is a big deal: “They” say that, in podcasting, most new shows don’t make it past the seventh episode. So, to now be a three-digit podcast makes us happy. To mark this milestone, we decided to put together some of our favorite moments from the many discussions we've had about movies. These moments span our 99 previous episodes. So, if you're a new listener, you'll get a fun glimpse at what led us to this moment. And if you've been with us for a long time (perhaps from the beginning?), this will be an entertaining trip down memory lane. We thank you for listening and promise to continue delivering content that's incisive and enjoyable. Have fun!
