Insights into Entertainment

Insights into Entertainment

An original podcast by a husband and wife team of self professed pop-culture geeks. It is a discussion about all things entertainment from movies and music to television and pop culture. We examine some of the more obscure aspects of the entertainment industry and ask the questions that most mainstream media tends to gloss over or shy away from all together. We give you the insights into the entertainment happenings that you didn't even realize you wanted.
