Great concept, relatable hosts

After listening to the latest episode, I’m going to go back and listen to the others! I love the concept for this show, and I can’t wait to hear what other characters these hosts have decided to “improve.” Also, the rapport between the hosts is great and easy to listen to!

Keep up the great work!

Super fun!

As a fan of myth and pop culture alike, I really love this podcast. It’s fun and funny, and a lot of the takes on how to “improve” characters are really ingenious. I cant recommend enough!

All the feels

I started listening to PopApoc a couple of weeks ago (after promising that I would) and I’m so glad that I finally chose to dive in. The Horsemen has made me laugh (out loud in odd places and more than once I’ve gotten the impression that people think I’m insane), ponder existence, and, most recently, cry (tears gently rolling down my cheeks, not the ugly cry) over things they’ve said. They’re witty and entertaining, but they still manage to get their audience to really dig deep and think about the philosophical messages that both the original and newly reimagined characters and worlds have. It’s fantastic. It’s inspiring (I have multiple fan fictions in my head waiting for school to calm down enough for me to write them down). It’s my favorite podcast. Keep up the awesome work guys! #bringbackscurveybeard
