Dear Chris and Andy

You guys are doing great!

Fun, entertaining, and way more relevant then the big picture pod (sorry Sean...movies are no longer the primo story telling medium... ie: Sean doing drafts for content right now).

The pod talks about the tv industry and a random assortment of shows most likely picked by Andy’s 2 hours he has to watch tv after he leaves dadington island for the day.

Great pod for new show ideas and cultural impact of tv.

free ad- Recommend the switch to Spotify for any ringer pod.

Ps: I apologize to Chris for spamming your dms, I blame the multiple seltzer’s
