I love movie therapy

I love listening to Movie Therapy with Rafer and Kristen. I listen to it while I’m going for a walk or driving in my car. I take notes of all the movies and TV shows that they recommend and love it when I hear them talk about one of my favorite movies.The advice they give is right on the mark!

enamored with this show ,

Lifeline in the pandemic and beyond

I listen to Kristen’s other podcast “By the Book” cohosting with Jolenta, which I love. but Movie Therapy gives me something else that has been the perfect mixture of fun and healing in the lonely times of a pandemic. I moved to NYC not knowing anyone just a few months before the pandemic hit. This show has been so fun to listen to as I relate to other people problems and also expanded my knowledge and taste in movies and TV shows - thanks to Kristen and Rafer! I have recommended to my friends but feel eager to write a review to show my support!

PS: Kristen I would love to be your mentee. You’re just so inspiring and I day dream about having afternoon tea with you and talk about life. (!!!)

A Delight!

I’ve been binging this podcast and my Watchlist is bursting at the seams! Rafer and Kristen havesuch a great rapport, and it’s especially fun when they disagree on advice or on movies. I had fallen into a viewing rut, and I’m so happy to have some new films to be excited about. Thanks to both hosts for making such a great show!
