Scott and Arnold make great hosts for in depth talks about interesting topics. It is much more than a geek chat in that they really gets delves into the topics and the quality is very good. Definitely in my top 3 podcasts to listen to. Keep it up guys!
Entertaining, insightful, and informative.
A fun podcast by two guys who clearly respect each other's opinions.
Pull up a chair
Pull up a chair and sit down with Scott and Arnold for some candid chat about your favorite topics from the 50th anniversary of “Doctor Who” to the “Star Trek” reboot. These guys offer a candid discussion somewhere between what you’d hear on more commercial discussions and uber-fandom. They talk about the good and the bad. I enjoyed the discussion over the “Day of the Doctor” which offered several more angles I never thought about and added to my enjoyment of the 50th anniversary offerings from the “Doctor Who” universe. I find myself sharing many of Arnold’s opinions and can hardly wait to listen to the “True Blood” cast.
Definitely worth checking out!
