One of my favorites

One of the best new (to me) podcasts about bad movies. Dan and Corky play so well off each other, have a great format and production, and both have great "radio" voices which makes them easy to listen to. Still catching up on all the episodes, but am subscibed and looking forward to more.

The Bree's knees ,

If you like bad movies, this is recommended

Really funny hosts talking about movies that are bad for different reasons, and in different ways. This is candy for the mind, truly recommended.

Krispy_Kay ,

Great listen!

These guys have great chemistry! The way they describe movies and such make me want to crack a cold one open and hang out!
