Thought-provoking but also oddly soothing?
One of my favorite movie review podcasts. One of my favorite celebrity couples. Two soft-spoken, sweet, and brilliant people talking about a different movie each week. It’s ice cool water for your brain.
Well done 👏
This is a great podcast. I love listening to Matt & Ashley’s takes on the movies and it helps me decide if I should spend my time watching a certain movie.
I love them. Quick to the point.
