NetFreaks: Luke Cage, Narcos, Stranger Things, and other Netflix Originals

Nothing seems to have affected the media landscape in so short a time as Netflix's broad launch into original programming. With that in mind, David Troy, Adam Eastwood and Heather Woodcock decided to start a show where we'd challenge ourselves to discuss as many Netflix Original Series and Films as we can find the time to binge. Whether it's dramas like House of Cards, Narcos, Marco Polo, Daredevil and Jessica Jones, comedies like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Master of None or Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp or hard-hitting movies and docu-series like Making a Murderer and Beasts of No Nation, we (and a guest-host every week) want to share these viewing experiences with our listeners through this little show of ours.
