Welcome to the 36th episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! This is the final of our very belated year in review episodes, where on this occasion we’ll round up our top-10 movies of 2017 ahead of the weekend’s Academy Awards.
As Leftover Popcorn continues its slow and steady return, we won’t always be sticking to the kind of weekly posting schedule that we previously worked off, but with that comes good news. Not only will we continue to talk about everything we love (and occasionally dislike) from the world of cinema and TV, but we’ll also be branching off into wider pop culture from time to time too.
Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder are passionate and ravenous consumers of pop culture content in its various forms, and that will hopefully lead to an eclectic variety of discussions for your enjoyment over the coming months.
Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.
