Horrible sound quality.

So disappointing. Was looking forward to taking in the Karina Longworth episode because I’m such a fan of her podcast sound on so atrocious it’s just unlistenable.

Great insight on classic films

Kristen is very knowledgeable on all things classic cinema related and delivers her episodes in an interesting and fun manner. She gives info at a good pace - not too fast, not too slow and her audio is easy to listen to. Two thumbs up!
