One of the BEST Podcasts!!

I like the recap format of this podcast and enjoy what both David and Tara have to say. There are so many podcast where the host just wants to hear themselves talk but this is not one of them. They share interesting insights on the plot points and do a thorough and thoughtful review of the overall story arc. I don’t always agree with their opinions/predictions but usually appreciate them. Please keep reviewing this show and would love to listen to a review of season 1? Thanks Tara and David!

Don’t waste your time — find a different Succession podcast

One of the worst “recap” podcasts I’ve ever heard. Succession is widely regarded as one of the best television shows of all time and yet you’d never know it listening to these two amateur hosts act like they’re smarter than the Emmy award winning writers each week. Every episode is filled with long pauses

Best of the recaps

They are insightful, knowledgeable, round out the points with explanations, and listen to one another in normal voices. Not a ton of breaks so I respectfully listen to the few ads they have. Just a great high-level recap podcast. Keep it up.
