My all time favorite

This is my old time favorite podcast…. I eagerly wait for it every week.
Love the insight into movies and pop culture in general and there is great chemistry between all three hosts. In fact, I’ve following Jeff since the Totally Rad Show days.
I don’t always agree with the opinions being expressed, but the fact that I keep coming back and listen every week is a testament to the quality of the conversation being expressed in this show.
Would absolutely recommend to anyone that has even a passing interest in moves, TV shows and pop culture in general (love the afterdeck discussions).
