Episode 41: Maureen is Back(!), A Deep Dive into “Game of Thrones” and Reactions to “The Lion King” Full-Length Trailer

In Episode 41, Maureen returns from her two-week hiatus and gives her thoughts on everything we discussed on the podcast in her absence. We also give our reactions to the new full length trailer for the upcoming live action remake of The Lion King and share just-released casting news for the 2020 film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first musical, In the Heights.

In the Marquee Topic, Josh is joined by special guest, friend and pop culture connoisseur, Mike Wilbur, to break down the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones (WARNING: minor spoilers ahead). In our deep dive to prepare for the April 14 premiere of the final season, we talk about our overall impression of the show, our favorite scenes and characters and whether or not the show has more to say outside of being one of the most entertaining shows on television.  

PLUS, in our Teasers, Maureen gives both a regular teaser and an UN-teaser (something you should avoid) and Josh gives a suggestion for a cover of a song from A Star Is Born.
