RaurosRumble ,

One of the best movie pods in the game

Come for Jeff’s limericks, stay for David’s propensity of calling every guest by their full names at all times, and leave a 5 star review for Devindra’s impassioned pleas for everyone to watch The Leftovers.

Jeff Cannata Stan

I have resonated with Jeff’s reviews since the Totally Rad Show. I felt for him when Wii Fit told him he was overweight (same thing happened to me) and was so happy for him and his point of view as he’s moved through his career and family life.

His opinion on movies and tv has always been similar to mine and have appreciated his takes on these mediums. I typically come out of a movie being embarrassed that I cried and then listen to Jeff’s review and he normalizes it cause he cried too.

The other guys on the podcast are great too!

Bruno from Montreal ,

Only movie podcast I listen to

Look no further for a movie podcast, the guys have been doing this for years, they are obviously close and have a great rapport. I've been a listener for years and it's the only podcast I stop wtv I'm in the middle of to listen. Keep it up guys, I'll keep listening
