Incredible podcast.

I just discovered this podcast and cannot believe I wasn’t aware of it before. These two hosts provide intelligent and poignant analysis on every single episode and it is an absolute treat to listen to. I feel like i get smarter after every episode

Love the show. Find it very fulfilling.

I would like to suggest a show or two separate shows first covering the movie “After Life” from 1998 by Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda. What a fantastic film it is.

Then cover the movie “Nine Days” by Edson Oda who said he was inspired by After Life when writing it. Both films hit me like a ton of bricks so I’d love to hear your views of them.
