Welcome to the 26th episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! In this week’s episode we talk about War Machine, and the trailers for Game of Thrones: Season 7 and Logan Lucky.
Leftover Popcorn is a weekly podcast dedicated to the world of moving pictures. Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder share a passion for everything, both weird and wonderful, from the world of television and cinema, and as such we’ll be discussing an eclectic mix of topics in the weeks and months to come.
The podcast itself is built with a very simple structure, with the hosting duties shared, each episode is built around a mixture of three or four regular segments. The segments rotate from week to week leaving discussion open to new releases in film and or TV, classics from both the big and small screen, broader discussions on influential figures and their work, previews of upcoming releases, and more.
Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.
