Timely and insightful

Great concept and great pod. The witty host, Eric Mahoney, is smart, knowledgeable and insightful about film, and puts his guests at ease with his unassuming charm and generosity of spirit. In these unsettling days of COVID (and watching movies while sheltering in place), this is the right podcast at the right time. Bravo.
