Highly recommended!

One of the best pods around

The highlight of my week is when Len and Vincent release a new episode. I listen to a multitude of podcasts but this is the only one where I listen to EVERY episode that’s released. Their perspective is so fresh, nuanced, and fun, you’re unlikely to find it elsewhere.

Great show

I have listened for years and am sorry it has taken this long to leave a review. The knowledge and perspective of the hosts makes this one of the best movie review podcasts, pop culture podcasts really, on the air. Everyone, regardless of race, should check this wonderful podcast it really does have a quality that crosses over to appeal to all lovers of cinema.
