Kaylen Arnal ,

So much fun!

This podcast is very engaging, and it's pleasant to listen to hosts that are passionate about what they are talking about. You can tell that Charlene and Kelly take their time to research the film, in which they provide an excellent and thoughtful discussion for their viewers to listen to. I will definitely continue to listen to this podcast, and I am glad I found it!

Light fun

It’s a great time filler. Hosts are sweet. Wish they were more organized, adding a plot retelling structure and cleaning up the “likes” in their dialogue. They come off very young, but charming kids.

MajorDrunkenFan ,

Take a long strong drink of this podcast and you'll be happy!

I love listening to this podcast! Char and Kelly are so funny and they make you feel like they are your friends hanging out. Their drinks are great (I've made a few at home!), and their reviews and opinions are great. I am always impressed at the guests they are able to get and I love to have it on while I drive to and from work!
