Fun

I’m new to the Expanse series and books. I enjoy hearing the discussion and what they like about the episodes and a bit about the books. I don’t have anyone to talk with about the show, and books when I get those. Fun discussion about the show, thanks.

I love that I can find interesting interviews with the Expanse cast in the off-season. It is always entertaining and I learn new details about my favorite show.
Thank you guys

This is, in my opinion, the greatest podcast to get you started on The Expanse! It’s very entertaining and interesting to hear what the hosts have to say, and I would definitely come back for more.
