Great podcast with wonderful hosts
I really enjoyed the hosts knowledge of the topics that they are talking about and the banter between them. They have great taste in media and I find that they can turn me on to some great news comics and films that I may have missed.
Just stumbled upon this podcast. I listen to it on my walk to work, smoke breaks, lunch break and on my walk home. I've already got my pals into it.
Please do a follow up to your True Detective episode!!!! I listened to you guys after I'd already watched the finale. I'm super interested to hear how your initial impressions changed. Specifically on the portrayal of women, given what happens.
Thank you for taking your spare time and making my spare time a lot less dull!
