Like an FM Morning Show
Imagine the Morning Crew on your favorite FM station (ask your parents) were to talk about only the one thing you want to hear about. That is The Tightbeam.
A little too Spoilery
I really love the hosts of the podcast and want to listen so bad, but every episode has had a spoiler from the novels. If the podcast were moreso about the show than the novels, I would love to listen. Content is great and if you have read ALL the novels or don’t mind spoilers this podcast is great; 5 stars without the spoilers for sure.
