G’day to Jason Isaacs

Been listening to these two since before moving to NZ 13 years ago. Challenge you to find a better podcast!

Favourite Podcast

Being a member of the church, I get excited to tune in and listen to my favourite men squabble every Saturday (NZ time). For my Partner and I, the notification that a new Kermode and Mayo episode is available to download, is an indication that the weekend has begun and pancakes are on the way. Now who doesn’t like the sound of that? Five stars.

What's not to love!

Awesome movie reviews. Fun raport between the two main cast members. Little laughs. Always great.
