Podflix & Chill

Podflix & Chill is for people who enjoy discovering new television & film. We review original series and movies produced for video streaming platforms that you can't get anywhere else. Occasionally, we sit down with guests to talk about their favorite shows/films, or talk to them about their involvement in the production. If you spend more time scrolling to find something to watch than you do actually watching something, this podcast is for you.
