I found you!!! Again!!!

I saw you in the Ricochet feed today! I’m so
thrilled you’re all still alive!!!

Great show; always is. Highly recommended.

P.S. Baby Yoda won’t reunify Star Wars fandom, although it could.
Ewan McGregor as Kenobi in a series will.
Full stop.

The best podcast ever created

I look forward to each episode the way people in the 90s looked forward to Seinfeld each week.

The correct way to consume is to listen on Thursday morning, then go watch the “movie review of the week” on Friday, then re-listen again on Saturday.

I would happily pay $100/yr to get this podcast!
