Sometimes you find yourself discovering new things and opportunities without even realizing it. This happened to me as I started college, when I found myself discovering a new resurfacing trend―podcasts.

From start to finish, Us is a wild, weird, and intense ride. I rate it five stars, it is an amazing thriller. From the writing to the acting and character development, through the cinematography and soundtrack, it was masterfully done. Jordan Peele is a new age Hitchcock.
