I've always loved AFV, but never thought about how it all got made.
This is such a fun podcast- equal parts humor, documentary type info and good ol' nostalgia.
Overall the tone and host are perfect- I wanna hear more! Good job AFV!
I might just send in a tape now that I have all this insider info... Haha!
Fun and entertaining!
Loved the behind the scenes info from the people who make show. You wouldn’t know how much goes into funny videos.
AFV: America This Is Good
This show is a deep dive into what I thought would be something shallow, but ends up being a compelling listen throughout. It’s the story of an underdog of a TV show that got huge, and all the little things that conspired to make it happen. The interviews are interesting and revealing, and the production value is first-rate.
