RCoehrs ,

A wonderful walk through differences.

Book or Movie? the answer isnt always as easy as it seems , even for the host. Fair, Fun, Interesting, You're gonna wanna pick up a book or finally catch that flick you been meaning to see. And thats the mark of a great podcast

A Podcast review

Really dope podcast. I'm not the biggest reader of books or words written on the back of Shampoo bottles. I LOVE movies and consume them frequently. Always a fan of alternate versions so I've found that it's pretty neat to hear how close the movies are to the source material. Especially from the ones I love. Lots of variety in genres here. Lots of interesting tidbits. If you've ever wondered "Hmm.. wonder what the book was like?" ... then this is the listen for ya!
