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!

Brilliant!

I love the way Amy structures this program, not to mention the incredible facts and themes. I could listen to Amy talk on anything, so my only wish is that the show was an hour long!

The Best Kind of Rabbit Hole

Zoom is guaranteed to surprise and educate you. Amy Nicholson's curiosity uncovers stories ranging from Hollywood's killer horse actor to the anti-colonialist origins of A Trip to the Moon. Every episode is a well-produced, entertaining trip down a rabbit hole.
