Cannot tell u how much i love this podcast. Its absolutely brilliant. I’m 46 and didn't know any of this stuff even though i’m pretty familiar with the actors & movies involved etc. Makes me want to know everything about all the old time as this is sooooo interesting. The content is amazing (good ole Dad ;), narration banging and music just so right. Please please please keep it up. Massive thumbs up to you, your Dad and all the music too! X
