    It’s been a long road to Episode 100 of the podcast, but we made it! Thank you to everyone who has ever listened to or shared the podcast.

THANK YOU. -Chad

CasablancaDon ,

Personable and engaging!

Chelsea is consistently a spirited and thoughtful host. She is not out for snark or hot takes on the films she covers. She’s in it for the love and enjoyment and I really respect that. Keep up the fine work, miss!

Rshah6192 ,

They know how to make an onion out of a movie!

Let me explain the title: you may think that a particular movie that you liked was pretty straightforward, but this podcast peels it apart on so many levels (music, acting, direction, etc.), that it really makes you realize the artistic feat involved behind the 2 hours of entertainment you received.

absolutely i do ,

This is so amazing

It is a positive spin to glorious movies!! Chad also co-hosts the American workplace, which is one of my two favorite office podcast. No negative rabbit holes that ruin movies for me, and he interviews different host that keeps things interesting.
