What a wonderful show. The production quality is tip-top, the conversations are in-depth, and the topics are always interesting. Chris is easily one of the best podcast hosts you'll ever hear as he and co-host Yancy delve into films, lists, and other wonderful discussions. Wonderful show. I first heard Chris on The Podstuff with Perry & Lindsay Johnson and definitely had to check out his show when I did. Amazing work. Definitely a show that should be in your rotation.
