Welcome to Westworld! Every week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) will discuss the new HBO series about an old west theme park built in a futuristic world, populated by robot hosts and human guests. Theories, analysis, and overall madness is sure to ensue.
This week, Josh and Jo talk about “Contrapasso,” the fifth episode of the series. Robert Ford finally comes face to face with both Dolores and the Man in Black, just as theories surrounding both of those characters inch closer to reality over the course of the episode. Also in this podcast: mole patrol updates, Jo’s trip down the Matrix rabbit hole, thoughts on that little wake-up call at the end of the episode, and more.
