Griffin Dunne - brilliant episode

As a Brit GG was a bit of a mystery to me previously but this podcast is brilliant. Great guests wonderful anecdotes and GG always there to keep things on the dark side. Unmissable stuff

Amazing

This podcast has introduced me to so much of Hollywood’s yester-year characters and stories, as well as more contemporary figures. Always informative, filthy and hilarious. Occasionally shocking.
Frank will ask the questions you want answers to, Gilbert will ask the questions you really want the answers to but wouldn’t actually ask

Fascinating

A fascinating podcast with vintage guests sharing stories of old Hollywood. The hosts have a genuine enthusiasm for this stuff, but have a tendency to lead their guests from anecdote to anecdote, sometimes almost telling the stories themselves. Perhaps it would be better if the hosts prompted and asked gently probing questions to get their older guests to open up and maybe they’d be surprised and discover something out they hadn’t come across while doing their research. Anyway, I love the attempt, and when this show is flowing it’s a joy.
