My favorite podcast. I love the range of opinions, which are always discussed and valued. I'll often have to go back and rewatch an episode because of something I completely missed or viewed differently. Thanks for being welcoming of diversity in people and opinions. LLAP

This was really disappointing. Too much "oh my gawd" and "like, totally"...... I could feel them chomping their bubble gum and twirling their hair. Was really looking forward to this podcast and have been very let down by the She-Ra Man Haters Club podcast. Ironic that your episode about Wolf In The Fold and at least one of them said it almost made them stop watching TOS, because this episode ended this podcast for me
