Amy is fabulous

I love a deep dive on a topic, and honestly I only wish there were more episodes of Zoom. It’s always fascinating to explore a cultural phenomenon and the history behind them.

Amazing

I love this podcast! Between this and Unspooled, Amy Nicholson has become one of my favorite film critics. I have learned so much already, and I only wish that they released more episodes!
