I feel weird about writing a 5-star review based on the intro episode, but having listened to through the entirety of Hanson & Cork's previous podcast (Twilight Highlight Zone) multiple times I feel comfortable saying that these guys are entertaining and I'm sure that their new podcasting adventure will be 5-star worthy.
Hilarious and fun
An AFI fan since 1999, this is like reliving my childhood always trying to get my friends into this band. Thankfully, this podcast does a great job at doing that. The back and forth experience is hilarious and the going in blind aspect of it is such a good idea to show the authenticity of listening to a hyped up band. I'm really happy one of my favorite bands of all time gets such a phenomenal podcast. @keahpa
One of my favorite bands
AFI was my favorite band when I was in high school. I loved them until 2003 with Sing the Sorrow, but Black Sails is still my favorite. I was pretty excited when I heard about this podcast. Each week I listen to the album of the week and read all the lyrics, then listen to the podcast immediately afterwards. Thanks for doing the this podcast! It’s a trip back memory lane for me.
