Great Podcast. Its a MUST SUBSCRIBE!
Very insightful. Tom Fudge is a great host and I am very grateful they take the time to produce a podcast. The topics they cover range from political to pop culture. Each subject is explored at a depth only matched by Terry Gross from Fresh Air. What makes These Days better than Fresh Air is the fact that Fudge interacts on a more personal level with guests and the wide range of topic. He is not emotional, just more relatable. One last thing, If anybody from the show is reading this. More Film Club of the Air!!!! I cant get enough of the trio of Fudge, Marks and Accomondo. It is by far the best and most interesting views on movies, actors and directors. You guys play off each other so well. Please, please more Film Club!!
