Thanks to a friend’s recommendation, I’ve been listening for a few years now, and I have to say that Gavia and Morgan make a fantastic podcast duo. They’re consistently hilarious, and they bring such great energy whether they’re discussing movies, books, or television. I’m such a fan of how smart and insightful their comments are. More people should know about this show!

can’t recommend enough

Gavia’s voice is both very hot and very soothing. I love this show so much! Through the show, I’ve been introduced to tons of indies I wouldn’t have sought out without Morgan and Gav’s discussion. ❤️❤️❤️

My toppest tier movie podcast

Nothing in my pod app is as agonizing as when I have an Overinvested episode sitting there that I can’t listen to yet because I still haven’t seen the thing, just trapped on the other side of the glass from the GOOD COMMENTARY from the WISE, FUNNY WOMEN. Sometimes finally crashing through that glass like the Kool-Aid man is as rewarding as actually seeing the movie. Sometimes more so!
