Logan Z ,

Keeps getting better!

Badr and his rotating team of experts continue to impress and entertain me every show! You can tell they have done their research before each episode and bring a level of professionalism & expertise that is greatly appreciated. Some of my personal favorite ShortBox podcasts are the recent DIsney+ MCU episode breakdowns and Patreon-driven topics.

A New Favorite

Insightful and well organized, the team of the shortbox cover the latest news on comics and various fandom with commentary that is candid yet knowledgeable. It’s like hanging out with all your nerdy friends talking about what you love but they came with the facts! Working in the medical field, my life has been hectic and I definitely don’t have time to read or game like I want to but The Shortbox has fit into the few free moments of my life and has been a great way to keep me informed and connected to the things that brighten my day.
