The hosts are a zany mixture of conspiracy theorists, comedians, and news anchors. The podcast does not do a great job of staying on-task, and lots of time is spent on non-Cloverfield matters. The podcast is about 12% Cloverfield and the rest is fluff. If this bothers you, you may want to skip this podcast and focus on Reddit or Cloverfield Clues for your Cloverfield fix. When the hosts can stay focused on Cloverfield, info is given and wild theories are discussed.
The hosts have an infectious laughter, and do not take themselves too seriously. Fans create movie related songs, explain barrels of farts, and debate swamp pop.
The podcast really gets interesting as the movie release day approaches, and the ARG (augmented reality game) begins. Movie marketers hide clues in web sites, voicemails, and buried caches. The host’s excitement becomes infectious as clues are found and solved by the community.
If you can’t get enough of the Cloverfield universe, this podcast is the one for you. I’m curious to see what will become of the podcast once the movie has been released for awhile. 3 out of 5 John Goodman’s faces. You can find the podcast here on on iTunes.
