This is Everything!

This podcast is everything I didn’t know I needed in my life! The energy that Dom and Billy share is genuine and heartwarming, but is also refreshingly absurd and hilarious! I don’t think I’ve laughed (literally) out loud at a podcast this much before. Keep it up!!

Oh, and John, if you need help with any LOTR trivia hit me up. I’ve got you covered 👍 me and you vs Billy and Dom?

Brilliant

I listen to tons of podcasts, mostly audio dramas and almost no talk radio style casts…. However you guys NAILED IT! Your chemistry, topics of conversation, energy, everything is exactly what a perfect audio experience is supposed to be. I listen and I feel like I’m in the room with you guys. Well done, you’re the best, love you both!!

Friendship All Around

Me and my childhood best friend grew up doing LOTR movie marathons at sleepovers, it was always something we’ve bonded over together. This past year we’ve barely been able to see each other due to Covid restrictions, however once we found out about this podcast we started listening together and discussing the episodes and it’s really brought us closer during a time when we are physically apart. We’ve enjoyed listening to this podcast so so much we promised the first thing we are going to do when we can see each other again is marathon the extended versions while eating our favourite food. Thank you for all the laughs and nostalgia!
