I thought I liked the National Treasure films enough, but then I listened to this podcast. Emily and Aubrey's love of the movies and U.S. history is delightful and charming. I find myself entertained and learning about things I never would have known or thought to research myself. They also have a great rapport. I suddenly find myself wanting to watch both of these movies again...I think Andy Samberg's Nicolas Cage would have this to say about these hosts' passion for the films, "that's high praise."

It has been a while since I've watched the movies, but this pod made me want to watch them along with each episode. If you're just looking for National Treasure content or you want some history and context for the movie, this is the pod for you. Hosts are very entertaining, so if you're just looking for ANYTHING, this is worth checking out.

Aubrey and Emily's passion for National Treasure is contagious even for non-superfans! This podcast has given me a broader appreciation not only for this film series but for film in general, thanks to the hosts' abilities to dissect the most innocuous-seeming plot points and uncover fun Easter eggs, story-wide motifs, and deeper, unforeseen meanings at every turn. This is a great listen for history buffs, science nerds, film critics, and Nick Cage aficionados alike!

This series takes a deep dive into the National Treasure franchise. I love how Aubrey and Emily break down so many parts of the movie while giving you a history lesson. It's really neat to hear what was accurate, embellished, and just plain fake in the films. Check them out.

For a great podcast! Aubrey and Emily are two great hosts and put a lot of heart and soul into this show. Even if you're not at a Nicolas Cage in National Treasure level there's still a ton to check out in this show!
-David (Apple Podcasts)
The hosts are very informative and do deep dives into these movies in a way that no one else does. Breaking it down to an almost molecular level (pun intended) and still keeping it entertaining is tough to do but they pull it off. 10/10 would recommend!
