The Weekly Podioplex: September 13, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we return to the podcasting airwaves as Tom Hanks returns to the number one position with the story of Sully and the Miracle on the Hudson. Coming up against the airline captain are sequels and real world drama including Bridget Jones, the Blair Witch, and Edward Snowden.

Moving to home entertainment, Marvel declares Civil War, the Warrens return to the Conjuring, and a shark terrorizes Blake Lively in The Shallows. Television gets a Big Bang, a trip to Longmire, and a visit from Madam Secretary. We wrap that section with a look back on Stand By Me and the Transformers. Add in a bit of news about a certain fedora-clad archeologist and an unofficial fan film, and you have a brand new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, exclusively on The Chronic Rift Network.
