The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman

The Weekly Stuff #213 – Industry Harassment, News Round-up, 13th Doctor Costume & More

Episode Summary

We cover two weeks worth of news, including the flood of sexual harassment and assault allegations that have consumed the entertainment, media, and political spheres recently, as we catch up from a week off.

Episode Notes

It’s the first episode of a two-podcast week, as some unforeseen craziness in Sean’s life left us taking last week off. So we’ve split this week’s topics into two episodes. First, in today’s podcast, we cover two weeks’ worth of news, from PlayStation’s big event in Paris, to Universal bailing on their Dark Universe after just one movie, to Amazon potentially making a Lord of the Rings series, to Doctor Who revealing Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor costume. But we also spend the first hour diving deep into the flood of sexual harassment and assault allegations that have consumed the entertainment, media, and political spheres these past few weeks, listing every story we could find, and striving to comprehend what this moment means for our culture and society going forward.

Enjoy, and join us again Thursday for our second show of the week, where we’ll review Thor Ragnarok, give more thoughts on Super Mario Odyssey and Wolfenstein II, review Sonic Forces, and more!
