Customer Reviews

Zeta iron man ,

It’s like building the arc reactor in a cave with a box of scraps

So I’m new a new fan of the pod and was glad I was recommended it. It’s one of the few pop culture pods I listen to because you can actually feel the cohost interest in the material and can tell they did there research. I’ve been really enjoying the countdown to infinity and it’s been hyping me up although I’m not sure I can get much more excited for infinity wars. This is a must listen to for any fan from the serious comic collectors, to the causal movie goer and everything in between. Also it’s always interesting when they put their own personal experiences and takes on characters. Keep up the good work!

10 on the Nerdy Scale

Love love LOVE this podcast! Courtney and Shalom are the perfect mix of entertaining and goofy as well as thought provoking and intelligent. I love their creative approach to rating and reviewing movies as well as the unique analysis they provide each episode. Not only do Courtney and Shalom have great banter, their discussions keep me engaged during the episode and thinking about the topics all week! I wish I could give a higher rating than 5 stars! Definitely would recommend. For me, this podcast gets a 10 on the nerdy scale which in this case would be “My glasses are thicker than my notebook.”

Super Fun!

It’s hard to find people like the Happy Hipsters who actually want to talk about movies as in-depth as I do! Love hearing their perspective and they have great chemistry. I love that they take on some more classic or older movies too- like Jurassic Park! Also, I’m kind of a dork but the production/sound quality is really good, I hate when people don’t pay attention to that stuff?
