Really enjoy listening to this podcast because it provides a different view and idea of popular shows like Glee and Gossip Girl. Educated hosts comment on a variety of topics that somehow connect to the shows. Really enjoying the discussion of the show Skins for the summer but I wish you would go in a little deeper into what happens each episode. Keep up the good work!
I enjoy this podcast-obviously these guys are intelligent and well informed. My only gripe is that sometimes I wonder if either of them will ever get a complete sentence out-besides the constant interruptions of each other, there always seems to be quite a lot of hemming and hawing. "Um...uh...sort of...sort of...um...kind of...uh...this...this...that that that...um..." etc., etc. Too bad-I'm trying to let it roll off, but sometimes this aspect makes for difficult listening.
Interesting, unique podcast
This podcast offers a fascinating, insightful analysis of teen soap operas through the discussion of sociology and literature. Honestly, I don't even watch Gossip Girl and Glee regularly anymore, but I always tune into this podcast because these guys present some seriously scholarly subjects in a fun, entertaining way. Give it a listen; it's a one-of-a-kind show.
