Awesome Pod for anyone who loves TV

I look forward to this pod coming out every week and it’s a highlight to go for a Saturday morning walk as I catch up on the going on’s of the TV industry. Both hosts mix professional opinion with their own personalities exceptionally well and provide a great insight as to what is occurring, whether it’s on broadcast, cable or streaming. There’s no TV podcast that comes close. Keep up the amazing work Lesley and Dan!
