Excellent conversations!

I love the guests and conversations that Mike curates. I have so many cinema blind spots that this helps me fill in, thanks for the amazing work!

PBdisappointment ,

Too many interruptions and bias

I used to consider this the best film podcast out there but lately, the amount of commercials which literally interrupt interviews mid sentence and very frequently, have taken over. And nowadays, they can’t help themselves to interject their personal politics into the discussion whether it calls for it or not. This podcast has really fallen in quality and I am dropping these guys for better shows.

Simply Delicious!!

Always appreciate the deep dive conversations Mike and his friends have about both popular and lesser known films.
I often watch the movie while listening.
Keep up the great work!
