Description

Galaxy Brains is a conversation starter for the TV-and-movie obsessed. With unabashed curiosity, hosts Dave Schilling and Jonah Ray answer the questions raised by the movies or TV shows everyone is talking about, then ask a few more. With the help of an expert guest — from fellow comedians to behind-the-scenes creators — the show brings the energy of post-watch text chains and wild Reddit threads to podcasts. Galaxy Brains is where movies, TV, and overthinking collide. From Polygon and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
