HBO's Westworld is full of vagaries and questions. Out West is a podcast from The Outline that tries to guess at what the answers are. Each week, we find one fan with a solid theory, and we kick the tires to see how that theory holds up.

Really good podcast if you're looking for more than just a recap. Keep up the good work and I'll keep listening!
Great podcast so far, i like that everyone has a different theory, i like how they discuss all the theories with an open mind. Really my favorite out of all the emerging westword podcasts.

My favorite thing with Westworld is the theorizing that goes on by the fans between episodes. The host of Out West do a great job of taking these theories and doing a thorough analysis of theory in conjunction with the data known based on the episodes they'd seen.
