Customer Reviews

Interesting without fail...

I was surprised to see this had not been reviewed as never a week goes by where I don't look forward to listening to this podcast and couldn't imagine other NPR listeners didn't feel the same. This podcast provides a great insight to movie making from all aspects; producers, directors, writers and actors. Every weeks is different and hugely intestesting and entertaining. Of course there are the critics but there are always critcs... Have a listen!

More Happy Hour, please!!!

What a pleasure! The repackaging of NPR entertainment stories has that special kind of boredom only NPR is capable of, but the Happy Hour segments rock! Unbuttoned, smart, funny, insightful, (young!!!!) and benefitting from what most podcasts seem to think is unnecessary, EDITING! Too often other podcasts ramble while 20 minutes of material fills out an hour. This makes smart people sound super-smart, packing an hour's material into 35 minutes. I even listened to it twice, just for Just watch this space. This will be taken up and moved to the big time. Word will out. Linda Homes. I'll marry you goddammit, except I'm already married.


If I had to state what makes ME happy it would be this podcast - specifically the Pop Culture Happy Hour with Linda, Trey, Stephen and Glen and their sometimes guest Ms. Hardymon. I so enjoy listening to them and I always learn something too! PLEASE keep it up - it is definitely one of my very bright spots in my week.
