Our Friends Said They'd Listen

Our Friends Said They'd Listen is one of the two greatest podcasts hosted by David and Ron, who host two great podcasts. We talk about all kinds of movies- especially old and obscure ones. Plus really bad ones that we like for some reason. Nobody wears pants during taping (we thought it was important to include that last part).
