Addicted but can’t wait for more relatable “problems”

I love the diversity of their suggestions. I wish they would mention where we can watch the films. Some of them they did but there were a few mentioned and I found myself saying, “How can I watch this?” I loved that even though I may not relate to the problem, I enjoyed the suggestion and their reason for that suggestion. I think as the podcast grows there will be more that I relate to. Thank you guys for also recommending other podcasts we might enjoy:
