Great podcast!

If you grew up in the 80’s as I did, and are a fan of the movies and music of that era, then you owe it to yourself to check out this podcast! Fun and informative; it’s a great listen. Each segment compares similar movies and music of one the greatest eras for either. I’ve always been a fan actor’s and musicians autobiographies on audio, but this is definitely more enjoyable. I commute 30 minutes to and from work each day and this podcast makes me look forward to it!

My new favorite podcast!

This is such a fun show that reminds me of the friendly debates my friends and I used to have in high school! The hosts are very upbeat, informed, and their enthusiasm for the music/movies is infectious. It's also one of the few podcasts I can listen to with kids in the car and not worry about profanity. Keep up the great work and I can't wait for the next episode!
