Absolute Magic

Uncle Bob’s has to be my favorite podcast out there. Leigh and Lori are so funny and informative, and their show always leaves me feeling inspired ✨ Leigh and Lori will joke a lot about being stupid, but I’ve honestly learned so much from Uncle Bob’s! It can be kind of hard to find analyses on pop culture, film, and other media without being condescended to by some cinephile dudebro, but Uncle Bob’s has always been a refreshing joy to listen to. Leigh and Lori cultivate laughs while sharing their lessons with open hearts, and really make the listener feel included. If you like to laugh, cry, and learn a thing or two about all things magical and mythical then I cannot recommend Uncle Bob’s Magic Cabinet enough! :-)

My all time favorite

I’m always on the hunt for good podcasts…but this is one of the only ones I’ve stuck with since episode 1. It’s been a wild few years & having Uncle Bob’s Magic Cabinet to tune into every week has been a complete lifesaver at many points for me. Thank you for all you guys do.
