Episode 56: Westworld w/ Robb


Boy, have we got a vacation for you…get on the hovercraft and join us on a trip back to Westworld! Robb joins Viewing Party to talk about the 1973 movie that the HBO series is based on. In this episode, Robb reveals that may have met Snoop Dogg at a gas station, Katie has a pickle kissing incident, and we learn that we’d all visit the same Delos theme park. Plus: robots!



Katie’s brother Robb joins Viewing Party this week — and in person this time! You can hear him on our Anastasia episode and find him elsewhere on Twitter @RobbThomas and as part of the Columbus Podcast Festival.
