Clearly in over their head when it comes to discussions of certain shows. Like the other reviewer said, they rely too much on wikipedia.

Too much personal rambling
When they actually discuss the shows, it is great. When they go on for MINUTES about stuff about them, it's annoying. It is also really annoying when they discuss shows they clearly haven't seen, in which cases, they tend to just regurgitate the Wiki article.

Fun and informational!
This is my favorite theatre podcast! It's provides both an educational look into the shows they cover, as well as a more subjective take into certain aspects of them. The episodes are enjoyable whether you're super familiar with the particular show they're discussing or not.
