The Matrix Resurrections is almost upon us, and the Act 3 Podcast is partying like it's 1999 with a retrospective look at The Matrix Trilogy! Join Chandler and guest host Joshua Wehmeyer as they discuss what The Matrix means to them, weigh the merits of the controversial sequels, and wonder could possibly be in store for the upcoming fourth film in the franchise.
