One of funniest podcasts out there!

Maya and Toben always deliver the goods and do both informative and amusing recaps on a wide range of movies. It’s a fun hangout every time and I’m always excited to listen to the next one. They don’t update that regularly anymore but they have enough episodes uploaded at this point that there’s plenty to return to. If you’re looking for a funny and casual discussion about movies and media in general, definitely check out this podcast.
