  • So informative, diverse and enter into the banterverse

    Banterverse is spicy, concise and entertaining! I really enjoy the insight and the updates but the bantering is fun and not bloated content. I also enjoy the diverse films and filmmakers that come on the show. more

  • The drinking game

    We have a shot every time they mentions David Zaslav. Now we’re drunk by the end of the show. But we also love it.

  • Too much.

    I follow her on twitter, so might bias me a bit but Kim has become borderline unhinged by current social and political environment. Hard to believe any sort of ‘take’ she posits is at all fair/not somehow tinged by her seething social/political resentment. Also, getting bored of her, every 5 mins, angling for some way to mention work she’s done in the past (1990s??) and people she’s rubbed elbows with (and she loves pretending powerful industry folk think about her at all)
