  • Please replace the hosts

    The hosts of this pod are either lazy or just dumb. So many factual errors and misunderstandings of the plot are delivered in each episode to the point where it becomes painful to listen to. The one star is for the amazing contribution of the people involved in the production and their interviews.

  • Love this podcast , because I love The Wire

    I just discovered The Wire this year and boy do I love it. It’s complicated and dense though so I needed this podcast to help me make sense of some bits and just to debrief others. Dave and Cobi are really smart and funny. I really need you guys to catch up to seasons 4 and 5!!

  • Changing my review

    I previously left a less positive review complaining about the choppiness in the editing in Season 1. After listening to seasons 2 and 3, it seems like they made a lot of improvements on this front that made it much more listenable. It really is a well done podcast, with a lot of good humor and good interviews from cast members - my mind is officially changed. 5*
