This is it folks. Episode 350 of the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast and the last episode of 2016. As is a TWoRP tradition, I have the Cancer Man in the house to record a drunken commentary. This year's film? 2001's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone. Listen in horror as we get wasted watching children's entertainment!
