Great podcast, in depth interviews

Great Engaging Podcast

I really enjoy this podcast! The host is so knowledgeable, respectful and funny. He asks great questions, and you can tell how much the guests enjoy talking to him and appreciate different questions than just the ones always asked. Excellent interesting guests of directors and actors I love, would recommend.

Best. Podcast. Ever.

I discovered this podcast at the start of lockdown when I was looking for podcasts to start and quickly became a fan! Hilarious interviews which don’t include the usual mundane questions which actors are bombarded with. You can tell Josh is so knowledgeable and genuinely interested in his guests so the guests open up and enjoy themselves providing us with some great content! Found myself laughing out loud when listening to this so warning to anyone out in public!🤣 So natural and down to earth! Enjoy listening to this a lot since there is always a digression into the guests revealing their inner pop-culture nerd! Cannot reccomend highly enough, certainly helped me through lockdown! (Fav interviews have to be Martin Freeman, Simon Pegg, Daniel Radcliffe,Claire Foy and Matt Smith!)
