The Weekly Podioplex: June 21, 2016

On an all-new triple feature edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it was a good week to be lost under the sea as Finding Dory found box office gold and a slew of new records. The forgetful blue tang faces some steep competition over the next three weeks as your podcast host takes a vacation, including Independence Day: Resurgence, The BFG, and The Secret Life of Pets. Can Dory withstand box office fire of that magnitude?

On the home entertainment front, the list is a who's who of spring releases playing companion to the high-definition adventures of the Ninth Doctor. Add on a threesome of Blu-ray classics, and it's an edition of The Weekly Podioplex that is stuffed to the gills on The Chronic Rift Network.
