Favorite Podcast

I found this podcast through Matt's other podcast Anthology and instantly fell in love. I even went back and listened to the previous 200+ episodes. Matt, Tiny, and Mike are great guys who you would want to be friends with and hang out with. Matt is pretty great interacting with his listeners and makes you feel apart of a community. Glad i found this podcast a couple years ago, only wish i found it sooner!

Great podcast

Matt does a great job of breaking down movies and tv shows with his co-host Tiny. They’re pretty funny and their guest talkers bring a nice new view to the podcast. Should definitely listen.

Great podcast

I really enjoy this podcast. They give honest feedback about the films that they watch. They also spend a great deal of time describing how they choose and track films. It is well worth a listen.
