Great idea for a pod that’s executed really well with likeable hosts!
Where the Wild Things Are
I cannot tell a L.I.E this is a fantastic podcast with Gigantic potential. Seriously, I have been listening to this Knight and Day and it has me feeling like Little Miss Sunshine. A great podcast looking at the career of Paul Dano, who's basically The King of supporting roles. An actor who can portray Love and Mercy, Cowboys and Aliens- hell, he could even play The Girl Next Door. This is a guy whose talent shines like Ruby Sparks. Any of The Newcomers out there should check out this podcast ASAP.
It’s a Da-Yes from me!
A perfectly curated podcast giving you a nice slice of Paul Dano’s mainstream output with some more obscure gems. A perfect blend of film chat and daring to ask the big question of their subject, guest and each other; Are You OK?
This podcast is more than OK, it’s great.
