These guys are a hoot!
I love the idea of this podcast and how they execute it. The topics are things that I am usually very interested in, so that's a bonus. But, these guys talk about things even with movies or shows that I love... but maybe didn't ever really think of the angles they are taking on. I laugh a lot with these episodes and they give me just the right amount of "making me want to think" while still being entertained. Well done, gents!
What a great show!
What a great podcast about movies. Love the hosts, love the vibe and they get great guests. Keep it up!
