Great look back at films

It’s a very entertaining podcast that gives a snapshot of the time, gives a good synopsis as well as breakdown of the film. Fun engaging conversation and a good listen

TravRyaLas ,

Hang out with these guys.

I have listened to over 150 of these now. That’s at least a couple of hundred hours listening. I can do that because these people are fun, informative, hilarious, and very consistent. A great group!

The 30 Something Podcast who…?
Haven’t you read the papers?
