"If this sounds a little niche and inside baseball, it’s because it is. It turns out that yes, two people who make a living crafting stories, can be quite engaging as podcast co-hosts. There are of course extremely industry-specific topics that will leave outsiders a little reluctant to push play. But there are also the little nuggets shared from their personal lives, and, even better, moments of Hollywood/Industry tidbits that can be gleamed from even the most dense-sounding episode. Where the podcast really shines is in the interview episodes. Here, the hosts play their roles perfectly, switching seamlessly between carefully teeing up insightful questions backed by their vast knowledge, and going full on enthusiastic pop culture fanboys."

"Listening to the podcast is inspiring and relieving because you know every second you spend listening to these two is time well spent. There is an underlying trust during the show, and the simple fact that these two extraordinary filmmakers have no need to devote themselves to the show, but willingly do so each episode. I was blown away with how much they cared about their audience, and how much fun they were having teaching us. John and Craig relate their experiences to their lessons and build off each other’s points with ease."
