Have Been Enjoying the Show!

I listen while I cook! I really enjoy hearing Matt’s insights and his sense of humor. I think it’s clear he puts a lot of time into each episode and it pays off.

Awesome Podcast

I love Black Mirror and a couple years ago i searched for Black Mirror podcasts. This one caught my eye and I haven't looked back. I'll always be greatful for this podcast because thats how i came in contact with the Podcast Matt Hurt, he's a great guy with movie/tv tastes similar to me. I love the interactions with Matt and even though i don't watch every episode of the Twilight Zone I still enjoy listening to Matt's reviews on them. Really enjoying watching the reboot of the Twilight Zone and Matt's take on them. His reviews on Black Mirror are top notch and I love hearing bonus reviews(especialy the ones i get to pick)!

This is a really entertaining podcast.

The host does a great job of giving background and analysis of each episode.

I hope he makes it through the series.
