July 23, 2017

In this episode, Adam and Alan talk about the Planet of the Apes trilogy, including their thoughts on the most recent installment, War for the Planet of the Apes.

Just a warning: major spoilers discussed for each film, so best enjoyed if you’ve seen all the movies.

Maybe you’re a fan of the Star Wars films, but the other media -- books, games, comics -- is too overwhelming to get started. Becca gives us a guide of what media outside of the films could be a good fit and why. Find Becca on Twitter @urangelb. She’s also the co-host of two Star Wars podcasts: Tarkin’s Top Shelf and Kanata’s castle.
