In depth information in an easily digestible format.

Linda and Mandy have a wonderful chemistry that is fun and inviting. Like a wiki-rabbit hole, they dive into specifics you never knew you wanted to know. Definitely a must-listen if you enjoy finding out the devil in the details of pop culture properties.

Great analysis

Great depth and discussion. Feels like you're getting some strong academic analysis but it's very digestable/relatable.
