Quality Conversation

Keeps me company during long nights at work, interesting guests. I just listened to They Live! episode I’m interested to revisit that movie now that I have personally experienced Seattle and DTLA. Would love to hear an episode on Videodrome in future.

Impressive

I just found this podcast and decided to check out the episode on The Towering Inferno and thought it was pretty great. I’m looking forward to checking out more episodes.
