Lots of fun!
My favorite Hannibal podcast (haven't listened to the non-Hannibal eps yet). Audio quality is good, and the hosts are really passionate. Listening is like having a conversation with friends. Definitely recommend!
Great horror podcast
I first listened because Cleolinda was a guest, and I’ll keep listening because the hosts are great. Can’t wait for more Hannibal episodes!
