The Best

Their are many other great film podcast out there, but this one has been the gold standard since 2008!

Anon78899 ,

Thank you

Absolutely my go-to podcast, I’ll listen to this one before all other podcasts in all genres. They wished me a happy birthday with a surprise message from my wife, kept me company on Iceland’s ring road, and are a steady fixture of my commute and now work-from-home life. Thank you for all that you do!

Adam J Newby ,

Great movie podcast.

Great movie podcast. Love all the break downs of the movies. Also love how you time stamp your reviews so if I want I can always just skip to the part I want to hear. Keep up the great work. Highly recommend
