Great Guests with humor!
Listened to the episode “The Karate Kid, The Song and The Series.” Love the Intro and music! The podcast has a very professional feel. Absolutely loved the News and reviews segment. Seems like this is Robert Pattinson’s year with two hit movie trailers, The Batman and Tenant.
Joe definitely unearthed some memories. “You’re the best” is still considered a cult anthem, I would say. He seems to be a very humble person and can’t wait for his new album. Jeff, on the other hand, is another great guest. Love his quote, “Karate Kid brought my family together,” which shows the movie’s impact on our lives. Overall, a fun-filled episode. Can’t wait for Cobra Kai on Netflix!
Scott, you are a great host. I love your voice and interview style. Thank you for publishing great content. Recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys listening to nerd culture talk shows.
Super easy to listen to show with great guests and great topics. These guys and gals just love nerd culture and are passionate about this stuff. What a great show!
I really enjoyed the opening to the Star Trek episode. Toxicity is a huge problem, but you CAN ignore it. No need to fuel the fire and make things worse. Well said!
