Must Go Faster is a Pop Culture Podcast for The People, created, hosted and produced by Ben Brantlinger and Robert Denfeld.
The two met back in 2007 at Radford University, where they immediately bonded over Coen Brothers movies, LOST theories, and 90s hip hop, holding many battles over who controlled the precious AUX cord for party playlists. Their very first interaction was a giddy back and forth around their mutual love for the movie American Psycho. They infamously spent the last night of college spring break arguing over who “knew more” about rap music (needless to say, both were single at the time). And several years later, they’ve launched a passion project around their love for Pop Culture: the Must Go Faster Podcast.
Now based in Brooklyn and Long Beach respectively, Ben and Rob are passionate, ravenous consumers who have trustworthy opinions on that new album to stream, that new show to binge or that new movie to obsess over. Think of them as the people in your workplace or social circle that you turn to for this kind of advice.
Named after an obscure line from screen legend Jeff Goldblum,
Must Go Faster sifts through the noise to give you reviews, recommendations, rankings, deep dives and spirited banter on movies, music, TV and beyond. Everyone’s time is valuable, so why waste it watching and hearing stuff you don’t like? Must Go Faster is here to help you figure that out, and rightfully "drink your milkshake."
