Love this show

I’ve listened on and off for a couple of years, but recently became a patron after listening regularly and now going back through the extensive library. Love the movie and series reviews as well as the author interviews and book reviews. I’ve bought several books ( most recently “Intergalactic Repairmen” and the “Best American Sci-fi” books). Both are great. I also love how David always remembers to give a synopsis of the subjects being discussed. Excellent. Look forward to each episode. Thanks and keep up the great work.

Great stuff

GGttG has kept me engaged, entertained and—most importantly—awake on many a long road trip. This show is a must-listen for anyone who honestly considers themself a science fiction fan.
