Lively, engaging hosts and a good variety of content

It's been great fun to watch the BGN crew gain steam month over month to become a real cutural force! With a sharp, insightful crew of true fans representing a diverse array of interests and subcultures -- they cover everything from anime to zombies -- there's always a reason to tune in to each episode. I really appreciate the welcoming vibe as well, with none of the gross gatekeeping I sometimes see in other outlets. Here's to another 130 epsodes! :)
