Podcast so good even the Judge rates it

Marc Evan Jackson is actually the best host ever. He’s the standard that I would now measure all podcast hosts to.

Love the discussions and behind the scenes here. I have enjoyed the journey so much and will forever miss it. Definitely will be listening to all of them again when I eventually rewatch this smartest dumbest show on network television.

Thank you to everyone involved in the podcast from the bottom of my heart.

Priceless that “Shawn” is the host.

Best show/podcast ever

Marc, you are brilliant. You are such an incredible podcast host and the content you and your team bring to the table to discuss each week is so wonderfully interesting. I adore learning about the writers, the AD’s, the props department, the costumes. I love that Niednagel is now a verb. What a brilliant podcast that draws you in for interviews with the actors, but keeps you coming back to learn about each person who has worked on this unique 30 minutes of American sitcom television. The best show ever created, and a wonderful podcast that highlights its brilliance.
