For the second part of the podcast they interview a TV professional about their career, what they watch and what they may have on the horizon. Pilot Co-Pilots! is not only relevant and timely, but also gives insight into the making of some of our favorite TV shows.

Lots of fun and heart
If you like "How Did This Get Made?", "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me," and looking up Rotten Tomatoes reviews, this podcast is for you. The two co-pilots have excellent chemistry and comedic timing, making it an easy listen. Their charming and hilarious interview with George Wendt is so interesting - and they even play a game with him! The main feature though is their review of ANGEL FROM HELL, which is at once thorough and tongue-and-cheek. I can't wait for the next episode.
Two thumbs up!
I love this show!
