Depends on the Guest!

By matt tierneyy - Apr 15 2020

The format of this podcast is brilliant, and it’s one of the easiest podcasts to drop in and out of. My only problem is that some of the guests come across as self righteous and pretentious to the point that I have to turn it off.

Waiting for this to blow up

As an avid theatre nerd I’ve always been searching for a fun and informative podcast about theatre that doesn’t seek to alienate the unfamiliar but also unapologetically welcomes the initiated. Patrick does a great job of both. I’m just waiting for the moment that this becomes even bigger than it already is.
