Informative and entertaining

This is a great podcast for film lovers. Josh, the host is extremely well-informed on the workings of the movie-making process and knows what questions to ask his guess. Skip the first approximately 6 minutes because that’s when he talks to his irrelevant and irritating co-worker for no reason.

Good interviews

Quite entertaining and informative. Too much vocal fry in the intros.
