My favorite podcast!!

I stumbled into this podcast, and it has quickly become my favorite!! I am a fan of movie scores, and each episode has intrigued me, even when I am not at all familiar with the episode guest. Every guest has a unique story, background and perspective, and the show hosts bring it all to the air. I cherry picked episodes at first—now I am going back and catching up on all seasons, not skipping a single one!!
Keep up the great show!!

Love. But...

I do love this podcast. Brilliant Hosts, amazing guests... but sometimes the hosts talk over each other and often talk more than the guests get to talk. Would love to hear more from the guests❤️

Good, but… let the guests speak omg

It’s not bad, they do get great guests and have interesting discussion. But the annoying way the two guys team up to tease their female cohost and how much they talk over each other and the actual guests makes me not want to listen. They’ll ask a guest a question and then speak over them as they start to answer. Just listen to Edith Bowman’s Sountracking, she actually lets guests speak there
