    Introducing: What Did We Just Watch?
    The Porch Room’s Michael, Pete, and John have spent years crafting ridiculous spy craft stories for Mission: Rejected, but nothing they’ve dreamed up can quite compete with 1997’s The Saint. Join them as they serve as the guest contestants for What Did We Just Watch?: The Movie Trivia Quiz Show Podcast.

    On What Did We Just Watch?, three contestants put aside their better judgment to answer questions about movies that may not be on your watch list. Along with the audience they are challenged to remember character names, story beats, and plot details of this week's feature film. Along the way we discuss some of the films most fun, weird and confusing aspects. If you are a fan of movies, trivia, and don't take either that seriously then this is the show for you.

    Created & Hosted by Mark Nessel

    Featuring: Pete Barry, J. Michael DeAngelis, John Dowgin
