What Is Good What Is On Netflix As We Speak is a podcast about TV (yes, including things that aren't on Netflix). Each week we chat about a few things we've recently started watching and then go a bit more in depth on some shows we've finished before finally climaxing with gushing enthusiasm for a show we've both watched and enjoyed. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to e-mail at the address below or you can tweet us @WIGWIONAWS.
Episode 27 - 2020 In Review
Max and Michael have been stringently following lockdown and rules and, fearful of transmitting the 'rona through the radio waves, have been silent for all that time. They have braved disease and ridicule now though to bring you their review of 2020's TV, including all new special categories as well as the traditional top 10 of the year.
Episode 26 - A Change in Format (Spoiler Free)
It's a new year and it's all change at WIGWIONAWS HQ. This episode marks the first in a new format for Max and Michael. From now on we'll be releasing podcasts on a more regular basis (every 2-4 weeks). Those podcasts will also alternate between completely spoiler free episodes where we talk about things we have just started watching or are part way through and spoiler-filled episodes where we discuss things we have finished. This episode is the first of the spoiler free episodes and there's a lot to cover, see the running order below.
Please note: we did not record this podcast in person so the sound quality is a bit iffy due to to Skype recording. We'll try and work on improving that as we go along but apologies in advance for this.

End of 2019 Review - part 3
It's time to go out in style (for 2019) as Max and Michael finish their countdown from three to one. Having utterly failed to agree on anything so far will there be any shared appreciation for 2019's TV at the bitter end? Listen in to find out. Discussion is all spoiler-free.
On a separate note, the boys would like to apologise for the extended absence in the latter half of 2019. Normal practice is expected to resume in 2020 with some format shifts that should be to the benfit of all concerned. Look out for news on that in the early part of next year. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all!

Very enjoyable podcast
It's great, but I don't have Netflix
High quality podcast all about what's on Netflix, a bit like the modern Radio Times. Just a pity I don't have Netflix.
