The best film podcast

This has been said in several reviews already, but I want to reiterate that the passion and enthusiasm and love of film that Bibbs and Whitney have are what make their podcasts the best around. When I’m listening to a Critically Acclaimed Network podcast, even when I have little to no prior knowledge about the film/topic, I get swept up in the conversation because Bibbs and Whitney are such engaging and interesting speakers. Not to mention that they put out multiple podcasts each week, all of which I look forward to.

The Incredible duo that give you a multitude of

These guys are always passionate about what they are talking about and provide their viewers a shopping list of content. From reviewing movies recently released to reviewing tv shows that had 1 season or less. William Bibbiani and Whitney Seibold are the Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel of my generations.
