Tight 30 minute review podcast

Yes! Don’t get me wrong I *do* listen to casual review podcasts where a few people talk about films for over an hour, but give me a tight 30 minutes any day! I highly recommend “Interview with a 3-year-old.” It has nothing to do with the podcast (I hope Billy is a recurring guest) which is two Aussies casually chatting about current films. (Five from Pretty in Podcast)

Good show

This is a good, concise podcast that covers a phenomenal variety of movies, able to go from Star Wars: The Last Jedi to Casablanca without issue. I like that the guys can disagree and have a good conversation rather than turn into a distraction. Will definitely keep listening.
