Three of my favorite people talking about my favorite topic on my favorite podcast network. You WILL love the things I love.
Thank you, ma'am
Cameron Esposito is a hilarious and charming host (which you'll know if you listen to her other podcast, Put Your Hands Together). It's hard for her to talk about ANYTHING without being engaging... but when it's my favorite genre of movies (sci-fi/action)? That's appointment podcasting. I'm not quite sure what that means, but you get the idea.
I listen to a lot of podcasts, and they usually take a dozen or so episodes to find their groove. Not so with Wham Bam Pow. Episode one, and it's already fantastic. Breaking the show up into segments keeps things focused and moving. Discussion about movies you love with jokes aplenty. What more could you ask for?
everything you want in a podcast
Three people with great chemistry talking about a topic they all clearly love-- such a treat to spend time with Wham Bam Pow!
