Very Insightful

It’s so fascinating revisiting these great movies and hear unheard, uncut interviews of the cast and crew presented in this way. I’ve learned so much. Very nostalgic yet almost feels new again. Can’t wait to hear more. Thank you Matt and Greg! 👏👍

Good fun

It’s a fun listen to the people involved in bringing us certain films. A bit of a blast from the past with 2 hosts who laugh and wax nostalgic at times. Give it a listen.
