Thought it was
A show of two dudes talking about... Oh the episode we can not hear
I'm a Hitchcock fan and am VERY disappointed in this podcast. These guys are bored, monotoned and distracted. Their podcast does not motivate me to buy their book.
On the fence
It has potential to be a great show. Talk as if people have seen the movies. Have me on as a guest. I talk Hitchcock!
