Finding Gold in a Trash Heap
Some kind of award needs to be given to hosts, Mike and Morgan. The suffering they put themselves through, in watching horrible television for the sake of this pod, is admirable. These two take long-forgotten TV trash and turn it into podcast gold. Humorous, witty, and thoroughly enjoyable!
The most amazing Podcast in the WORLD!

Just wondering if we can put suggestions on here for the future or if you even read these. If so freaks and geeks or do they have to be bad shows?
