These guys are great!

This is a weird comparison but this show makes me feel a little bit like Great British Baking Show... the hosts are pleasantly silly, but also smart and very positive; and the guests are interesting even when I don’t know their work. I highly recommend this show!

Not sure how I feel

I liked it but sometimes I felt like they should shut up and play the interview.

10/10

First time listener & I can verify that this is a quality film podcast. The Dan Gilroy Nightcrawler episode was insightful and fun. Keep them coming
