A must for movie fans!!!

This is my go to podcast!!…I love the chemistry between Chris and Paul!!!…I catch myself finding reasons to listen to it,walks, yard work and any other time I can throw my AirPods in!!… if you are into movies or TV shows it’s a must and they are very good in letting you be a Part of the show by reading questions every week you post on Twitter!!! And be prepared for your neighbors to think you are insane because you are laughing mowing your yard…the episode they talked about the great outdoors with the raccoons and they kept on singing the theme song had me laughing so hard!!!

The best movie podcast there is...

I absolutely love this podcast, Chris and Paul have a great dynamic and I’ve found myself aligning with Paul’s feelings on movies a lot of times.. which was something I’d rarely found before finding this podcast and since I have its become a weekly staple for me to put on while I’m driving, cooking or cleaning the house.. a MUST for movie fans and it’s something I look forward to every week!
