Deep Dive Delights

I love the passion and preparation that goes into each podcast, and the deep dives into all details. No detail is too small. Don’t let the haters discourage y’all!

First time Soprano watcher

We just got HBO max and decided the first series to watch was Sopranos. Found this podcast after binging the first season. This podcast brings light to nuances that a first time watcher would miss. However, spoiler beware: I listened to the M.I. Interview and it spoiled Christopher for me. That won’t stop me from continuing to recap each episode with my Poda Bing crew.
