Great discussions about great movies! Really glad I found this.
Such an informative movie podcast
I love the thoroughness of each episode. Have been looking for a place to learn more about “First Cow” and this podcast did exactly that. I have been an a24 fan for a while now and I am happy that a large selection of movies are discussed.
