Amazing show!!! ❤️
Great show! There is so much variety
An Enjoyable and Enlightening Experience
“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?”
- Albert Einstein
In short, this is an excellent, highly original podcast. Two English teachers, Andrew and Colin (and their guests), apply the art of literary criticism and analysis to every imaginable story-telling medium, from video games to music to (gasp!) Shakespeare. Also, comic books. Lots of comic books.
Each episode gives you the feeling that you’re sitting down to have a beer with these guys, just taking part in another one of their highly-educated, fun-filled conversations. I’m definitely looking forward to season 2 and beyond!
