Love the show, and love the hosts. Really fun content! More of the same please ☺️
Entertaining & Learn A lot
I'm always surprised at how much I learn from the different episode topics and all while being entertained too. The hosts do a great job with their research on all things pop culture and always love listening to them each week.
Really entertaining pod
Great pop culture pod that covers the most fun corners of geekery 🤓😎! Just listened to “justice league: animated series” ep and the hosts were witty and had wide ranging knowledge of cool obscure comic stuff. I learn cool new things almost every week and I like how the hosting duties shift based on passion of the hosts. The only thing that needs improving is Matt’s views on hummus...
