Eclectic and Fun!

What a wild podcast Attic Aficionados is. I love it. I love the discussion flow - moving from one topic to the other with ease in a facinating way. Love it.

Good stuff

Only listened to Season 1 (Dico episodes) and really enjoyed them.

Life, the universe, and G.I. Joe action figures

This is a great eclectic podcast about a wide range of topics. There is an ongoing theme around collectibles, but it takes delightful diversions into all manner of interesting stories and opinions.

Tom and Brandon have great chemistry and it's a joy to listen to.
