Back in the day...
It's SO great to be able to share something online with my nieces who live far away, in Alaska. When I was a kid, I loved SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK and ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE... Fun and educational facts put into shows with cliff hangers, great character voices, and clever writing. Serials like these are “everywhere” now... But Grant Baciocco writes and creates them seamlessly.
We've just heard two promos so far, but I'm really excited to here the show! (Perhaps it can help me fill in the gaps between Dr. Floyd Episodes)
Grant Baciocco is a brilliant writer and producer, I can only imagine greatness coming from this podcast!
Would be better
If it was longer, had more info, and included two people in or sides debating, it would be better. I think it’s a good idea to bring it different sides arguing why it did or didn’t happen.
