Episode 237: Our Favorite Summer Blockbusters. Plus, Billie Eilish


Back on Episode 233, we talked about the biggest summer blockbusters we can look forward to this year. But this week, we’re doing just the opposite: sharing some of our personal favorite movies released in the summers of yesteryear. If you’ve ever wondered what the Plugged In team enjoys movie-wise when we’re off the clock, this episode will give you a little bit of insight … and give you some ideas for films that might be worth your consideration if Hollywood’s rather thin slate of blockbusters this summer leaves you wanting.

In our second segment, it’s all about Billie Eilish. And we’ll talk about her new album, Hit Me Hard and Soft. It’s the influential 22-year-old singer’s third album, and we think you’re going to want to know some of the ideas and messages she’s sorting through on an album full of angst, heartbreak and same-gender romance.

As always, we’d love to hear from you and engage your thoughts on the topics we cover each week. You can connect with us in several different ways. The comments section below is one method. Or shoot us an email at [email protected].

And if you head over to our podcast homepage,, you’ll find a black ribbon on the right-hand side of the page where you can leave us a voicemail with your thoughts—we might even feature your audio message on a future show. And, of course, Facebook and Instagram are options, too. We’re excited to report that we’ve begun hearing from some of you, and we look forward to adding more voices to the show as you leave us your thoughts here.

And if there’s anything else on your mind when it comes to movies and entertainment, pop culture and technology, we’d love to hear what you’re thinking about. We’ll look forward to connecting with you.
