Great start to the podcast. With Troy and Aaron in charge, I think that we will be in good hands. Looking forward to a good podcast and a good show.
This is my Go-To Westworld podcast
I've listened to Aaron and Troy talk about The Blacklist for years now, so I was sold before I even listened. Now that I have, I'm locked in to Beyond Westworld as my only companion podcast for the upcoming series. They do things different and really dive into character motives and themes as opposed to an episode recap, which is exactly what I want from this type of podcast. Can't wait for more.
Unmatched for Westworld Fun
Troy and Aaron really can't be beat for their professional and fun approach to fan podcasting. They've proven their mettle with their podcast for The Blacklist, and they've really done their homework on Westworld. If you want a podcast with good audio, excellent content, and fan involvement, look no further.
