One of my faves
This podcast offers a vast array of interesting topics, touching on many beloved fandoms and works. The hosts give a well rounded and intelligent perspective and they are really fun listen to. I think my favorite episode so far has been the Star Trek TNG one. I'd love to hear them delve into Sailor Moon. Their recommendations never fail. I look forward to each new episode!
A delightful listen! I love hearing the thoughtful discussions about some of my childhood favorites!
