Smart, and such a treat!

One of the things I like best about Reply All is Alex and PJ’s rapport. In Reply All, the banter never overshadows the top notch reporting, but their charming relationship takes center stage in this podcast. I just loved this. I’d love to see more side projects like this.

Season Two!

I’m on episode three and already know I need a second season. Hush, The Strangers, The Ritual; a terror season! Huge props to PJ for being terrified on behalf of all us scaredy cats. I enjoy scary movies now (hands over eyes when needed) but it took about a decade to get here.
