Need a five star podcast look no further

I was a fan of True Blood from the start. The characters you watch on this show drew you in. Now you are able to hear from two of the best actresses that played on the show their experiences and get takes on how and what it took to make this incredible show! Even if you are not a fan of vampires this has something for everyone. Deborah and Kristen are a delight to listen to. I highly recommend it!

Love the show, but…

The interviews and recaps are great. I love the information on the background of making the show. Deb and Kristin are great.

However, Kristin will start going into a story or perspective that I want to hear and Deb just interrupts her almost every time and it never comes back. Please let her finish her stories! This is the only thing that really bugs me.

Not Just for FANgs!

One might assume this pod is only for culty True 🩸’s. But I assure you, actors, crew hands, directors and even screenwriters can learn SO much about their craft by listening to these ladies and their guests. Each episode takes a deep bite into the intricacies behind the scenes of this ground breaking HBO series and what it took to bring the book series to LIFE. It’s a must for anyone in film making.
