    Snot Boogie 20th Anniversary of The Wire Exclusive Interview. The Wire at 20

    "The Wire" turns 20 years old and we thought who better to speak to than Snot Boogie!! He kicked off the whole show!
    DaJuan Prince (@HomeOfTheWire on Twitter) was a fantastic guest. We love that he carried on being part of the show much longer than that one iconic scene!
    All together:
    "Got to. This America, man."

Great podcast to n my favourite tv show

I’ve listened to lots of similar shows to this but Kobi and Dave’s love of the show shines through. Great interviews and fantastic banter with some interesting insight! Look forward to every episode!

bob-dodo ,

Adds a whole new level to the series

The guys remind me of what I loved about the wire, get some great interviews and add little extras I never knew.
The show has a really easy low-key style, it’s easy to listen while commuting or doing the washing up. And it’ll make you want to watch the whole show all over again. Perfect!

richbrown22 ,

interviews great, commentary dissapointing

based on season one only. the interviews with cast and crew and really excellent

afraid the the two hosts don't really add any insights. I don't think they need to be superfans or overly needy about every last bit of detail but there really isn't much here and it often sounds like the presenters are working through a synopsis like it's a chore - very little curiosity, examination of the social commentary or interest in the communities represented expressed. dissapointing.
