Easily the best podcast ever!!

No other show goes deeper and longer into their guests than Gilbert and Frank.
Ok. That just looks bad.
But for me, their conversations enrich my life with stuff that I love and the topics and guest I live for. The show prep is immense. There is not one bad episode. It’s a show that gets better each and every time. Lon Chaney Jr would’ve loved this.

My favorite podcast

I’ve been a fan of Gilberts since his days of USA up all night. He was hilarious. One of my favorite Stern guests. This podcast made me discover a whole different side to him. The show is great, he gets fantastic guests. Topics are great. I love that he’s had some guests on who’s names I’ve never known. Also some of the amazing things I’ve learned about the those guests. Their days before they became famous. It’s all interesting. Also the great Frank Santopadre. Hope I got the last name right. He really knows all the details of the guests. His knowledge is impressive. I came to this podcast late in the game and missed some earlier episodes. I can’t wait until the old ones get re-released for all to hear. Thank you for this podcast.

Wonderful show!

I stumbled upon this podcast over two years ago and it’s kept me company every Monday and Tuesday on my drive to work ever since! Thank you Gilbert and Frank for providing such an entertaining show. Even if I don’t know the guest of the week by name, the discussion is always so engagingly fun that it doesn’t matter. The stories are always so great and I usually learn something about an old movie star. Thanks guys!
