Love this podcast

As an actor and film/tv enthusiast, this podcast is a weekly staple! 👏👏

Dreadful

Stop with the fake laughing. I counted 60+ times the presenter said ‘you know’, ‘kind of’, ‘sort of’, and she needs to blow her nose as her sound is guttural and unpleasant. And stop showing off, ‘I’m going to The BAFTA’s”. It’s not clever, or cool, or kind.

A good podcast featuring a roundup of the week’s entertainment releases and a great way to find new content.
