“The Chap Report," the timeless pop culture podcast that did not break any new ground nor dominated ratings in its original run, will returns to the podcastwaves with all-new episodes, in a special 90 minute premiere, TUESDAY, APRIL 24. “The Chap Report” will air in its regular time slot, the fourth Tuesday of each and every month on The Nerd Lunch feed.

Featuring the show’s original (and only) host Corey Chapman, the revival will explore television, movies, music, technology, politics, and everything in between.

On the premiere episode, Corey sits down with CT from Nerd Lunch to discuss how the reboot came to fruition. Then he welcomes Chris Tanski to the show, as they break down the 2018 Summer Movie season.
