Customer Reviews

See you next Wednesday!

There are way too many fans of 2001 who take themselves seriously. Chris and Rudi don’t, and the podcast is better for it. Come for the Kubrick trivia, stay for the deep cut music, movie, and general nerd references.

MBM excellence!

I want to get a T-shirt that says, “Don’t even worry about it.”

Rudi and Chris tackle this monster with humor and patience. Good variety of trivia and philosophical debate.

Funny and Insightful

As a fan of 2001, I have really enjoyed this podcast. They're well informed and quick, and the podcast is always entertaining.
