Harry Ponder Presents: Westworld 2.06 & 2.07

We skipped a week of Westworld coverage and didn’t tell a soul. Sorry! But we’re about to be even worse with another hiatus that will last through the season finale. Trust us, we create a better show this way. Now, listen in as your Harry Ponder Boys all get excited about this strange robot show once again.

Harry Ponder Presents: Westworld 2.04 “The Riddle of the Sphinx”

A human touch brings Brandon and Tanner back on board after last week’s disappointment left everyone unhappy. But is it enough to pull weekly buzzkill Luke out of the shadows? Let’s see if the tragedy of the Jim Delos robot is enough to excite his cold heart.

Does anyone else share Luke’s feelings or is he being unfairly critical of a great show? Let us know with an email or through our socials and we’ll try to actually check them before next week’s episode this time: podcast@harryponder.com / Twitter / Facebook.

 

Harry Ponder Presents: Westworld 2.03 “Virtù e Fortuna”

“Virtù e Fortuna” isn’t doing this season of Westworld any favors and your Harry Ponder Boys are here to explain why. For a show with such a fascinating concept, just about every character is doing something these guys don’t find interesting. As Tanner puts it so poetically, “If I have to watch one more episode where Bernard is just shaking in the corner, I’m going to put my strangling gloves on.”

And if anyone understands how guns work in this universe, Luke would really appreciate an explanation sent to podcast@harryponder.com or via Twitter/Facebook.

 

Harry Ponder Presents: Westworld 2.02 “Reunion”

Westworld’s second season follows up its premiere with … a lot of flashbacks featuring information we already knew and a disappointing brief meeting of woke hosts Dolores and Maeve. But at least the Man in Black is having more fun than ever! Though is this show quickly becoming one long biblical allegory? Either way, regardless of the Boys’ thoughts on this episode, Westworld is still weird and mysterious. That’s something, at least.

Like the episode more than we did? Tell us why we’re wrong at podcast@harryponder.com or via Twitter/Facebook.

 

Harry Ponder Presents: Westworld 2.01 “Journey into Night”

Westworld’s second season begins right where the last one left off, and so does the Harry Ponder coverage of the show. With real stakes and a very angry Dolores, this Westworld is a different place from the carefree theme park of yesteryear (which may just make for a better show altogether). But how does Bernard feel about all this? Is The Door a true mystery or just another red herring? And how did all of those hosts drown in an unmapped mystery lake? Let’s find out together.

Have a theory about where the show is heading this season? Because we sure don’t! Send them all to podcast@harryponder.com or via Twitter/Facebook and we’ll discuss our favorites on the show.

 

Harry Ponder and the Portrait of what Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash

A dramatic reading of the newly-discovered chapter from the lost novel, Harry Potter and what Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash. If you were put off by Luke’s gaspy laughter in the past, you’re in for quite a ride. Read along by visiting botnik.org or just close your eyes and let the words wash over you.

Do you have questions about the fate of Harry’s eyes, why Ron is now spiders, and if Hermione was actually eaten? Share your insight with us with an email to podcast@harryponder.com or via Twitter/Facebook.

Harry Ponder and the Hogwarts Admissions Office

It’s 2018 and we did it again. Strap on your scuba gear as your Harry Ponder Boys take a deep dive into the world of Hogwarts acceptance letters and the process of admissions, which we guarantee is stranger than you realize. Plus, the Boys get personal with their own stories of important mail and how they would have liked to discover their own magical abilities (if they had any, because in reality they’re nothing but a bunch of lowly No-Maj).

Seriously, though, is Hogwarts attendance mandatory? Let us know at podcast@harryponder.com or via Twitter/Facebook.

 

Harry Ponder: Of Death and Duels

The last Harry Ponder episode of the year brings the boys back together for Brandon to get serious to talk about death while Luke and Tanner just want to talk about people beating each other up. And there’s a new ranked list! We will keep assuming that you like those and make many more.

Think the show’s better with Tanner around again? So do we, but I know he’d like the encouragement. Fill his inbox: podcast@harryponder.com, or say hi on our social networks.

 

Harry Ponder and the Missing Tanner

Tanner is (unintentionally) missing from the show but that doesn’t stop us from digging into all the best spooks from the series just in time for Halloween! We also ask ourselves if Harry is an idiot again, for good measure. (He is.)

Tell Tanner how much you missed him at podcast@harryponder.com or via the social networks. We’ll print all of the positive comments and paste them above his bed. Without his knowing. So he is never insecure ever again.
