  • Humbling & Gratifying

    Kevin and Ben are wonderful hosts. The conversations are informative and relaxing and they always manage to keep the film choices fascinating. The episodes on Remember the Night, The Verdict, Le Mans, Rawhide and John Frankenheimer are examples of content I struggle to find elsewhere. The pod is a breath of fresh air compared to other shows of its ilk. Long live the spirits of Babs and Duke!
