Dj Yogi in Atlanta ,

It’s cool it is an intellectual ramble

It’s like having a conversation in the nerdiest black barber shop.

Great job

Really starting to settle into its own and becoming a must listen even when I haven’t seen/heard/read about that week’s topic

2 stars because at least they talked about aot. But the actual analysis was so infuriating to listen to. It’s like they watched a different show. Really? You couldn’t focus on anything in season 2 because u were staring at titans faces and armens hair cut. So frustrating. Also, season 2 character development was bad??? I geuss Reiner, bertholt, ymir, erwin, armen, eren, and Zeke aren’t characters. Just baffling.
