A Gem of a Podcast!

I found EJ's podcast post Daredevil cancellation, so I could deal with my anger and disbelief. I'm only about 5 episodes in, but it is SO GREAT. His laid back, relaxed style really opens up his interviewees. It's less an interview and more just a casual chat. You really get a sense for who these people are. Love it and can't wait to listen to more.

Great Stuff

Mr. Scott has his finger on the pulse of current entertainment.

Pretty great interviews!

I’m pretty new to listening to podcasts in general, but this is fantastic so far! I finished watching Daredevil and couldn’t get rid of the itch, so when I followed Deborah on Instagram, I saw her plugging this podcast so I figured I’d give it a try. I’ve only listened to a few episodes but they have all been absolutely fantastic! I love the casual spoiler-filled interviews with all of these actors.
