Link Problem Fixed!

Hi all,
If you tried to access the websites I reviewed in yesterday’s podcast roundup, you may have noticed that some links didn’t actually take you anywhere!
I apologize for that — I’m getting used to the new WordPress link manager, which is awesome, but also challenging for neo-Luddites such as myself  }o]_

In this spotlight, film critic and author Laremy Legel joins co-hosts Jason Pyle, Karl Huddleston, and Andy Howell of MOVIE PODCAST WEEKLY for a lively and wide-ranging discussion of films and the film industry. Eventually, of course, it devolves into a bitter, bare-knuckle brawl as Jason defends the new del Toro film, Pacific Rim, from, well, everybody else. Then Josh Ligairi drops by for the show’s mini-review segment and talks about eight freakin’ movies before he turns the mic over to someone else! In other words, it’s a typically awesome episode  🙂
