Intro to Taquitos

Informative - but make it interesting
I love this podcaster. He is able to correlate so many different pieces of information into a cohesive topic of discussion. Well researched and articulated. So good!
Informative and Entertaining
TWIMB does a great job of picking a topic, researching it, and laying out the info so it’s easily digestible. It doesn’t matter if you have absolutely no knowledge of the topic or you are well versed with the content, Kory is an incredibly knowledgeable host and has peaked my interest in new material. Keep up the good work.
This burrito hits the spot!
I'm absolutely loving this podcast, Kory really hits the ground running in Episode 1 and never stops. It's all things nerd - manga, games, and old kaiju movies all wrapped in one tasty burrito for your ears. Keep it coming!
