The morality of creating artificially-intelligent machines is tricky business. Maybe you want to indulge in thoughtful discussion or maybe you just want the answers handed to you on a silver platter. Either way, Jim and A.Ron have you covered with Watching Westworld, the officially unofficial podcast for the Westworld series on HBO. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
||ExplicitSeason 1 Wrapup||Jim and A.Ron put season one of HBO's Westworld in cold storage by talking about our overall thoughts, opinions, and hopes for next season.

||Explicit110 – The Bicameral Mind||A.Ron and Jim are very pleased with how the violent delights over season one would up having violent ends in the finale episode for Westworld, "The Bicameral Mind". Sure, maybe the first third of the episode was merely review for a class that has stud...||12/6/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit109 – The Well-Tempered Clavier||Many more puzzle pieces fell into place over the weekend as HBO's Westworld deployed episode 109, "The Well-Tempered Clavier". But there is still a lot left to uncover. Why did Dr. Ford deploy the reverie code?||11/29/2016||Free||View in iTunes|

||Explicit107 – Trompe L’Oeil||The floodgates have opened after the release of the newest episode of HBO's Westworld, "Trompe L'Oeil". Everyone is a host, unless you think they're a host, then they're a double secret human. There are at least five timelines,||11/15/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit106 – The Adversary||Seems like whether you loved the latest episode of HBO's Westworld, "The Adversary" depends on how much you bought into Maeve running roughshod over two bumbling technicians toiling in the bowls of Westworld's meat department.||11/8/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit105 – “Contrapasso”||Looks like multiple timelines is back on the menu! Just when we had completely written of the various timeline theories, they come roaring back in episode 105, "Contrapasso". Not saying that any theory at this point is on entirely solid ground,||11/1/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit104 – “Dissonance Theory”||Another intriguing and informative episode of HBO's Westworld is in the books, and we continue to have a lot to discuss.

Best of the Officially Unofficial
I'm watching Westworld because these guys are casting it. Funny, insightful, intelligent, and consistent, with a slice of dry pie every once in a while. Definitely increase the enjoyment of every series they cover.
Plus if you join the club, (for a measly BUCK a month), you get ad free casts, get to virtually hang with them every Friday while they get loaded, and watch them attempt to blast off into outer space. Oh and they're ex-Jehovah witnesses, with tons of great stories about what that entailed. And you'll learn what and where Beaver Island is. Seriously, subscribe the their casts, especially Game of Thrones, you'll be hooked. One giant Matt Damien head included, free of charge. You can't go wrong here.
Best TV Podcasters In The Biz
If Jim and A-Ron are casting for a new series, I start watching that show just because I like listening to them so much. The Walking Dead is too dumb of a show for me to watch, but I love listening to their synopsis of each episode.
They're both informative and funny in their own way. Far and away my most listened to Podcasters
I thought I'd give Watching Westworld a try. Sure enough the first sentences of the podcast are filled with F-bombs and ignorance beyond believe. Skip this one.
