It looks like Yolanda was RIGHT about that barn scene, and JD has a colorful and comical commentary about debriefing nude hosts.
From the very start of the series, we expressed doubts that the MIB raped Dolores in that barn, and this week’s episode seems to bear that out. And more questions are raised: why is Ford so fervent about the technicians not humanizing the hosts? Is Dolores having memory loops? What’s the deal with Arnold? And why in the world do they keep the hosts naked when doing debriefs (JD comically and colorfully expresses what everyone is thinking but no one is saying).
Stay tuned after the end credits as we have a funny bonus segment wherein JD, Yo and I try to have a Skype session with Edu. FYI, I’m whispering because we’re doing this test late at night and I’m trying not to wake my wife. As usual, hilarity ensues.
Leave us a voicemail below or shoot us an email to let us know what you think–firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edu is absent. But we plan to have him on for episode 4…if he can figure out Skype. 🙂

About the Show
“The Westworld podcast that Samuel L. Jackson would love!” This is the unofficial, unruly and often uproariously funny podcast about the HBO hit series Westworld. (If you don’t know what “CP Time” is…Google it.) In our discussion of Westworld, we can’t promise we’ll always “stay on target” (Star Wars tangents will be a-plenty). But we can promise you’ll always have a great time as four filmmaking friends–Ron, JD, Yolanda, and Edu–get deep, argue loud, throw shade on fan theories (and each other), and try to get to the bottom of who the hell this Man in Black is, what is Bernard up to, why Ford likes to hang out with creepy old dudes, and will Dolores ever gain her FREEEEEEDOM!
