Episode 66: Favourite Movies of 2017

best-of-not-2017
Happy new year, all listeners across the universe!

We are back with new topics, fresh ideas and some heavy duty motivation! Still with us are a few technical issues, which we again apologise for. It seems that getting a connection across the universe sometimes comes with static. But no technical issue is going to stop us from wrapping up 2017!

Our first episode of this year starts off with two important questions, who did we crush on in 2017 and what movie are we looking forward to in 2018. The main discussion of the episode focuses on our top 3 favourite movies of 2017, that were not released in 2017. Some of us go with a theme, one of us breaks the rules a little, and the discussion heats up when we get to our most favourite movie we saw last year. So sit back, listen to us ramble, and enjoy our favourite songs from 2017 in between!

Structure:
00:00:00 – 00:03:03 Introductions
00:03:04 – 00:20:35 Our Biggest Crushes in 2017 and The Most Anticipated Movies for 2018
00:20:36 – 01:06:28 Main Discussion: Top 3 Pre-2017 Movies We Saw Last Year
01:06:29 – 01:13:14 Plugs and Goodbyes

Songs:
Woman, by Harry Styles (Getter’s pick)
Go Go, by BTS (Nik’s pick)
Greenlight, by Lorde (Sofia’s pick)
Across the Universe, by Scorpions

With Halloween come and gone, and the next beloved holiday of the year a month away, Across the Universe Podcast’s newest Chick With an Accent gets to host her first episode! It may not be an international holiday, it may not include lots and lots of decorations, but it’s still special for us! (Or maybe just for Getter, but it’s her first time, so we’ll let her have her moment).
