Good, except when....
I love most aspects of this podcast-- the production background and the thematic discussions. However, sometimes the self-congratulatory giggling gets a bit much. This was most noticeable on the Jaws episode and it was almost so distracting and tiresome that I was going to unsubscribe. But, I think the guest was a bad match for that episode, and made the silliness worse (which is too bad for such a great film!) overall, this is a good listen for a commute.
Got more than I paid for.
Well I subscribed because I was told to and then got a very sincere thank you and I ask you when's that last time you where rewarded so swiftly ? Ya , that's right . Never . So I don't know what else you want from me other than my experience . Which was five star . So all together I give it a 7/10.
