Katydc ,

Laughing with the ladies!

Love listening to this recap of and deepdive into House of the Dragon. Love the humour. It feels like hanging with friends… who’re a lot nerdier than I am but who provide me with a deeper understanding and appreciation of a show I’m already really enjoying. 🐉🔥🏰

Nicholas Brooks ,

This is the stuff Lyonel!

A pair of absolute superstars! I would willingly listen to them read a shopping list together let alone the actual amazing episodes/stories that they breakdown!

More laughs!

TraceyMmmTV ,

Always teaches me something and makes me laugh!

Mal and Jo are my besties - they just don’t know it yet. And that’s how you’ll feel listening to them nerd out and talk about their favourite fandoms. The perfect blend of intelligent insight, knowledge of their subjects and inside jokes. I’ve been listening for years and will listen for many more. Bad babies unite! 🙌🏻
