Outlander Season 2: Problems and Pleasures

  1. I’m so glad this show is getting the attention it deserves. As a huge fan of period dramas it’s nice to see people are excited about this type of show. We haven’t seen that since Downton Abbey. It was really interesting listening to your podcast. Keep up the great work. Would you be interested in sharing your work on Moviepilot/Creators? Feel free to shoot me an e-mail if you’d like me to expand on that (contact details are on my blog). I’d love to hear from you.
