All around best podcasters!
Hi Gang, I have been listening to Golden Spiral Media since the Fringe podcasts. I need to tell you I have tried others but I always keep your feed handy, you are the best crew there is out there. I download more than 1 podcast for the shows I watch but yours are always the best. You have the nicest personalities and are a shear pleasure to listen to. So many of the other podcast have to many personalities that seem to do no more than try to yell over each other trying to be heard and that makes it unpleasant to listen to. You guys respect each other and agree or disagree with class! I'll be missing the we have to go back podcast now that it's over, but all good things must come to an end right? Keep up the good work.
Look no further!
I've been a fan of Darrell Darnell ever since I binge listened to The Fringe Podcast, and now that I've added Person of Interest to my viewing schedule, I didn't have far to look to find a podcast for this show. As part of the Golden Spiral Media network, Doug and Darrell make a great team with their insight and easy rapport with each other and their audience. And if you're someone that likes to interact with the hosts, look no further.
Darrell and Doug keep it interesting!
It's great to have Darrell and Doug continuing the POI podcast after TVTalk wound down, and the bonus is that they have expanded this podcast to an hour! Listen to them as they analyze plot twists, "machine" twists, and follow the beloved POI characters (including Bear) in each new episode. The technology section compares "real world" to "POI world" and "Beat the Machine" allows fans to predict what we think will happen as the show progresses. This podcast will keep you interested and make you think! Make this podcast your number today!
