Finally reviewing

Been listening for a couple months on another app, sorry it’s taken me so long to review it on here they keep asking us listeners to but I mean come on. I love this podcast. The hosts are passionate, knowledgeable, and a blast to listen to. Both hosts are awesome in their own ways I won’t get into how I’ll forget things they’ll get mad I’ll never let it go. but I wouldn’t give a podcast five stars for that alone. What sets this podcast apart for me is the emphasis on history and the people involved with the topics they care about. From the creators, to the companies, to development, to regional or historical significance, release and reception, I could go on; they really dig in to everything about these topics and as a listener, it not only blankets me in the kind of inside nerd knowledge I love, it actually revives passion I had for things. Not even just things I’ve spent time apart from, but even franchises I actively love; there’s so much meat to this podcast. I recommend it all the time and tell them just to find a topic they love and give it a try. That was a lot of typing for an iPhone. Thank you for reading.

So great!

I’m a huge fan of Drawfee, and a huge fan of Last Podcast on the Left. So naturally I’m a fan of the Venn diagram center that is this podcast. I’d describe it as a podcast of cocktail party facts but for when all of the cocktail parties you’re being invited to are full of nerds.
