Always fun, interesting and informative.
I have been on the search for a companion podcast to Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode's film review show for ages now (it's only good for one daily commute a week), and finally, purely by accident, I've discovered one. Dylan and Lisa's gentle ramblings and reviews are very entertaining, much fun, intelligent and also inspiringly helpful to make me want to go and do / listen to / see stuff (I've lived a mere mile from Chislehurst Caves for eight years and yet never been; after accompanying them on episode 10, I'd very much like to go there and meet Paul myself). Currently rationing the earlier Podcasts as don't want to consume them too quickly (it's been several weeks since one was added; hopefully more will be made in the future), but after a tough day at work, hearing their very lovely voices is an aural equivalent of a nice hot chocolate and fluffy slippers, albeit with insightful reviews and humour. The man does need to see Moonrise Kingdom though.
Top review podcast. Informative and entertaining insights into a wide variety of cultural things to see and do, given by two genuinely interesting, intelligent, and funny hosts...hope they continue!
