I love these conversations

I’ve been listening for years but listening to your Sirk discussion finally got me off my duff and into this review space. I’m learning so much and I LOVE how fluidly you go with whatever and wherever your guest takes the convo. Just a genuinely smart and engaging show.

Thank you

Thanks to Norm for doing this. I’ve been enjoying it a ton. There’s something about listening to Norm and his guests just talk movies the way they do. I can and often do listen to it all day.
