What's our name? We're the Amusement Park Podcast and we appreciate you listening to us. Just like the geek culture podcast space, there are a whole lot of Muhammad Ali documentaries available. Does HBO’s new film, What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali, stand out?

Also, we review Netflix's Ted Bundy movie, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. We ask if you should name your children after TV characters, like Daenerys or Khaleesi? And what chance does The Big Bang Theory have to provide closure in its series finale?
