I am excited for this podcast to start.
I am not sure why Kanye West is on here. I assume this is a strange joke but I don’t get it or want to get it.
my favorite new podcast
I usually am not at all into movie reviews and most interviews go over all the same stuff.
It's refreshing to hear an actual artist be a critic of the culture, and not just some nerd in an office somewhere who is too afraid to make something themselves.
Also it's refreshing that he is pretty bold and just talks to any of his guests about what's on his mind, and doesn't do puff pieces on them.
I will say I held back a star because he talks a little more than I think he should. Sometimes he asks a question, then clarifies it, then asks another question, then keeps talking for what feels like 20 minutes before the person has a chance to answer. But perhaps over time he'll get better at this....
Still one of my favorite podcasts..
Best movie podcast
Nobody does "talking movies" better. Even if I do disagree with the Bee a lot.
