WFTM Podcast Episode 16: Riding in a R2-D2 Plane

In this week’s episode, Leslie and Fernando discuss changing the format of the podcast before reviewing all the things they’ve watched and the things that have been read, including the final volumes of Brian Azzarello’s run on Wonder Woman, the film version of The Scorch Trials, Doctor Who’s return, Typhoid Mary and much more.

So what’s in Episode 16?

We’re changing the format of the show starting next week. Instead of one really long episode, there will be two more reasonably length episodes – one about books and comics at the first part of the week and a second about movies and television towards the end of the week. This way if you’re only interested in one subject or the other, you don’t have to search through an hour+ of us yammering to hear what you care about!
