Insightful and entertaining

I love this podcast. Sci-fi/fantasy is my favourite genre and a lot of the books featured are my favourites. It can be quite controversial when a beloved text is turned into a movie and this is a fun way to hear new opinions and perspectives. It doesn't even matter if I haven’t read the book or seen the movie the discussion is still inclusive and enjoyable. Also Jo is an awesome guest.

Thought provoking and Heartfelt

The best critics of any medium tend to be the ones who love the potential posed by their material. It is these same critics who are willing to pull apart and pick to pieces every trope, cliche and technique in order to see what makes a text tick. And this is one of those shows, where even the most beloved story is not immune to close examination, and where even the most wretched adaptation might be indulged. Highly worth checking out.
