MattMartinez25 ,

Great show

I’m not even really a fan of the horror movie genre… but the way Josh, Deb and Cobb interact with each other and the banter keeps me interested the whole show. It’s got me laughing out loud at times. I’m new to the podcast but it’s gone into my weekly rotation since I’ve started.
