Such a neat and interesting concept for a podcast!
Two Fun Perspectives
First of all, this girl (Katy Bug) handles these horror movies with more maturity than most adults I know. Her father (Nik aka Daddy) applies a responsible filter so they aren't reviewing anything too vulgar, sexual, or ultra violent.
Katy provides cute insights on these flicks through the eyes of kid. For her age she makes a lot of good points and brings up some well-thought criticism and praise. This girl could have a future in entertainment.
Thankfully she has a Dad that is committed to this show and clealry loves his kids. Nik keeps the show on track and guides it along via the movies' plot points. He throws out some simple, yet thought-provoking questions for Katy that often results in amusing answers. A humorous dude raising smart kids.
My personal favorites are the epsiodes where they review Gremlins, The Babadook, and It . Can't recommend this enough!
Best podcasts ever!!!!!
i love these podcasts even though i haven't seen most of these movies i still like them they are funny and just awesome in general.
