BB&C Podcast ,

Good Listen!

It's clear that the hosts are great friends who just love talking about movies you've never heard of! I would never take the time to watch movies like Turkish Star Wars by myself, but after listening to their episode, I just might have to!

Witty!

I've learned more about Stallone this month then I ever thought I would. Good stuff.

Badmat ,

Very entertaining podcast!

I honestly have to say that I enjoy this podcast, both of the hosts have amazing chemistry. You can’t tell that this is something that they are extremely passionate about, but they don’t take the subject to serious with lead to a great listening experience. I would totally recommend this podcast!
