    Xanadu

    Xanadu

    This week we learn how podcasting is really just one big roller disco with the 1980 flop Xanadu and ask, was this really one of the worst films ever made, or is it unfairly maligned? Lindsay tries to calculate how much rioting is required to kill a musical genre, and Kaveh tries to make the case that he is not a serial killer despite his traumatic head injury.

Favorite podcast!!

I only recently started listening to podcasts and decided to check out this one since I enjoy Lindsays videos & I’m completely obsessed! I binged it really quickly and re-listen to episodes all the time. This podcast just feels like comfort food to me, the hosts have a really great rapport and listening to it makes me feel like I’m hanging out with friends (even though sometimes they can be really harsh on shows I like and it hurts my souls a little 😔). I’ve also discovered some of my new favorite musicals though this! Obsessed!!

Very Entertaining Show

I quickly ran through the catalog of episodes within a week of beginning the show. I’m a fan of musicals like Lindsay and my partner is ambivalent to them like Kaveh. We both find much to love about their discussions of these classic shows. Their guests bring a lot to add to the conversation as well. Looking forward to when they eventually cover Newsies, as they have been hinting for some time now!

Came for the Truth of the Divine content and stayed

I share Kaveh’s feelings towards musicals so I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did. I ended up listening to the whole catalog over the course of a few days. Lindsay and Kaveh are great hosts, they’re both funny and have lots of interesting discussions. All of the guests have been great additions to the show as well.
