Tough to listen to..
You guys had great potential to make a really enjoyable podcast about one of the best World War mini series / films. For me what ruined it was the constant getting names wrong or pronouncing them poorly. Felt uneducated to me. I enjoyed you’re analysis of the episodes but at times found it hard to listen to.
I have to correct an assertion made in this podcast that the allies bombed Eindhoven on in September 1944 during Operation Market Garden. The German Luftwaffe carried out the air raid after the allies secured the city. Indeed, the allies were shown being welcomed into the city the previous day earlier in the same episode.
Should have been a great podcast
With the source material this should have been a great podcast. These two guys did so little research and you’d question if they were even fans of the show. I don’t know how many times I heard “what’s his name again?” “Was it?” regarding main characters and plot lines. The amount of misinformation and mispronunciations of people and places is truly shocking. You’d swear from these guys knowledge of BOB that they watched it when it first came out in 2001 and hadn’t seen it again before recording in 2017.... if you’re a fan avoid.
