High Quality

This pod belongs up there with some of the best in the industry. Host Dan Delgado starts his show on a strong note by looking at television’s rural purge. It’s a deep dive to find out what happened to some of your favorite country shows. He’s well researched and even throws in an interview to give the show a documentary feel. As a former broadcast journalist and broadcasting nerd, I’m excited to see where this show goes in the future.


This is a MUST Listen!

The sort of stuff you won't find anywhere, descriptions, accounts, insights, breakdowns, and its all cool crazy stuff! If you're a fan of Hollywood behind the scenes, or simply nostalgia, you can't beat it!

Hollywood Junkie

Loving this

Good, very well produced stories about some of Hollywood’s weirdest moments. I was relieved to learn the Lambada movie wasn’t a hallucination, and shocked to learn there were two of them. Great ideas for forgotten tales.
