A Deep Dive

Chris and CarrieLynn, along with an array of guest hosts, are not your ordinary ‘pop culture/movie/tv’ podcast. These guys bring an air of respectability and academia to their discussions and it shows. They use big words, big ideas, but always manage to keep the conversation engaging and easy enough for a guy with just a Bachelor’s interested and entertained.

It’s more than just ‘good/bad’ or ‘see/don’t see’, they really get into the issues surrounding a subject. Their roundtable on Joss Whedon is particularly wonderful. They’re proof positive that you can be a fan of something while still bringing a critical eye to it. Highly recommend.
