Westworld - 308 - Telegraph
If you're the type of person who slows down to see a multi-car pileup, you'll love the listener mail in this week's Telegraph.
Our 100th episode of Shat on TV: Westworld examines the link between Dolores and Mexican independence, sympathy for Serac, things the Season 3 finale did well, and reasons why viewers felt betrayed by HBO.

Westworld - 308 - Intacast
"Holy Guacamole!" cries Ashley Schafly as Westworld's season finale kills off key characters, does some serious soul-searching, and depicts the quietest of riots.
"Crisis Theory" felt more like springboard into a distant Westworld Season 4 than an end to Season 3, but that's not to say it wasn't full of big answers about Serac, the Man in Black, Charlotte, Dolores, Maeve, Rehoboam, and Caleb.
Plus, Bernard finally got the episode he deserved, and tons of dudes got shot in the foot.
Westworld - 307 - Telegraph
"Westworld" Episode 7's Telegraph has more laughs per minute than anything we've done this season. Listeners wrote and called in about Maeve's story arc, the real Dolores Prime, illogical fight scenes, EMPs, passed pawns, and French accents. You guys really can't let go of the accents.
In this mailbag edition of Shat on TV, we also cover "Neuromancer," exploding arms, minority roles in 2052, and whether Dolores and Maeve are just messing with each other.
I love everything they do!

Loved the show for a while. Perfection podcasting. Gene, bid D and Ash are genuine pros. And Ash is Legit rookie of the year.
Season was terrible they weren’t
I would have stopped watching Westworld last season but I love these hosts too much. Gene is classy as you know what and prettier than all the girls you know. Big D is the guy you have been best friends with since childhood and just the best. Ash is a hot walking brain way out of all of our leagues. I will be back for season 4 because of the three of them.
