    Episode 115 - Podcast Finale ...?

    Episode 115 - Podcast Finale ...?

    We have reached what appears to be the end of the road here at EMBL Podcast. While we are sad because it's unlikely that we will be able to continue producing content, we are going out on a positive note by publishing our final (?) episode on Halloween!

    For the first part of the episode, Mariah shares a couple of scary experiences from her past. They will chill you to the bone! After that, Chuy talks about some movies that would have made it as the main topics for possible future episodes. At the conclusion, we reminisce about past episodes, especially Mariah's guest spots.

    There are too many people to thank for helping us out throughout the years. We want to take the opportunity to thank Monica and Bel, our past cohosts, as well as everyone who agreed to appear as a guest, and everyone who sent positive feedback and advice. Until we see you on the next one, have a good one! :)

These two have awesome chemistry. I especially love how detailed their recaps are. I found them mentioning things that made me say “OMG I FORGOT ABOUT THAT!” They are awesome, and so is this podcast!

MsFonfrias ,

Great listen!

This podcast is so fun! Now all I want to do is watch the movies they’ve talked about starting with The Blob. I’m not much of a movie buff but this makes me want to be.

radgalspod ,

So cool!

I loveee how the hosts give not only a great breakdown of the movies/media but how they also relate it to something that actually exists/ is in real life! It gave a whole new dimension to the movie review and it was fascinating!
