Sexy and Gross, in a Cinematic way

Love hearing the banter between these two (and special guests!) from the Seattle area. Keep up the good work, in between SIFF viewings, if they ever end.

Sexy and Gross

This is a great podcast, and it keeps getting better. They asked for a review describing the show as "sexy and gross" and I had to comply. THAT is how much I like this podcast.
