The Best Movie & TV Podcast!

I have been listening to this podcast for almost 6 years and never miss an episode. A wide range of topics related to film are discussed intelligently and I laugh out loud almost every week! It’s like hanging out with friends!

MarielleRR ,

Great podcast!

Love Dave, Jeff and Derynda!

cenz nation ,

Great podcast with one unredeemable quality

I’m sorry, but Jeff is so annoying and really drags this podcast down. It’s like 2 adults (devindra and Dave) having an intelligent discussion with an immature child constantly interrupting the discussion. It’s infuriating. His limericks are NEVER funny or clever. His over the top outbursts of excitement are annoying. I love D&D, but J really makes me want to tear my ears off
