Bite Size Pop Culture Fun

This podcast is a very fun listen. The episodes are bite size so listning to them is fun and breezy. Adam clearly has a passion for pop culture and his enthsiasm is what makes this podcast great. I really enjoyed the Goonies episode, it was very funny. pop culture provides the content but it's Adam's charm that makes it work.

Informative and Fun

I have to admit that I usually get bored with one-host podcasts. I never got bored with this one, though. It probably helps that each episode is short, but they're still packed with a lot of interesting information! This show is definitely worth hitting the Subscribe button.
