    My 5 best before hearing podcast.
    1. Fargo on FX. I thought that last year’s episodes were great but this year was just as good, if not better. The opposite results of True Detective this year.
    2. Your podcast is fine but the two that stuck out this year were Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Podcast and Bill Simmons and his Channel 33. The former had great old Hollywood stories and guests who were prepared to tell risqué tales that were laugh out loud funny. Bill Simmons and his crew ran the gamut of sports, pop culture, and off the wall opinions.
    3. Jacob Trombley from the film Room. I have never seen such a performance from such a young actor carry a film. He was amazing and it will be a crime if not nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
    4. Amy Schumer was everywhere. It was her year. Liked Trainwreck but it was the bits from her TV show that stuck with me. Her take offs and their backhanded meanings of 12 Angry Men, Friday Night Lights, and Last F___able Day were funny and drove home a point.
    5. The Big Short. Few people understood what happened in 2008 and few people understood the all of the this movie but I admired Adam McKay for trying. How could such an event happen that affected virtually everybody on some level and yet only one person was convicted for all the carnage. We can have woodshop or home economics in high school but no basic financial classes? This would be most beneficial for the future of young people.

    love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would appreciate your

    It’s nearly impossible to find experienced people in this particular
    topic, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
