What A Deal
I can't say enough about how much I love this podcast. You do an excellent job of recapping every week, but also take a really great in-depth look into the show. A must listen for Fargo fans.
Also, I highly recommend checking out their Twitter feed too. They are really interactive and catch all the little details and dark humor.
Good hosts but
Why spend 20 minutes up front doing a beat by beat retelling of the episode? Being that everyone listening has seen the episode I don't see the need. Discussion and analysis are the thing, stick to that.
But Fargo is not in Minnesota! Ughhhhh
