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!

The World is All of Our Burrito

The host has some very solid research skills and does a great job of segmenting his show into the theme of the podcast. Having the different parts of a burrito correspond with what he’s talking about is pretty cool. I’m looking forward to future episodes that deep dive into other nerd culture topics.
