The analyses in this podcast are very clearly love letters to a franchise I adore. I legitimately look forward to every new episode, and have listened to certain episodes multiple times out of pure love. One of my favorite parts is the rich vocabulary and library of insults Josh in particular, but Molly as well, has. It causes for a lot of great laughs. This is a podcast that can truly keep me engaged for the full almost-two-hours.
Hurrah for lumps and blandishments
I've been a Peanuts fan for as long as I can remember. I was so excited to see this podcast! I love Molly & Josh! Anxiously waiting for season 3 and the long awaited discussion of 'Snoopy come home'. Hopefully they make it to the 80s and watch 'race for your life, Charlie Brown' which was my 1st ever peanuts movie.
Most charming podcast ever
So glad they are back for another season.
