This shouldn't be nearly as entertaining as it is.
I didn't have high hopes for listening to three writers for political magazines talking about pop culture. I was wrong: this podcast is spectacular. The hosts have a rare chemistry that compels you to enjoy whatever random topic they're discussing. It's like the Remnant, but for people who prefer joking about movies more than the inevitable decline of western civilization.
