LAMBCAST #359 Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately

by Jay Cluitt · February 1, 2017 · Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts, WBWL · 1 Comment

Apologies to anyone looking forward to the previously-scheduled episode of Lamby-Weds this week, alas once again life got in the way for many of our couples, so in impromptu round of Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately was hastily thrown together instead!

Joining Jay to discuss movies and more were Rebecca Sharp, Richard Kirkham, The Vern and Vern’s ScreenTrax co-host Jordan Jeske. We talked about A Dog’s Purpose, Bates Motel, Permanent Vacation, Trainspotting 2 and The Lost Weekend.

Also as this is the first show recorded since the Oscar nominations were annoucned, it’s pretty easy to guess what overshadowed the Rants and Raves this week. Also on tap: a couple of games of Last Lamb Standing, plus the Lambcast’s first (and hopefully last) in-show heckler.
