Kate’s Take: Top 5 Movies of 2014

Kate's Take top 5 cardIn our first special episode of Kate’s Take, Wil and I talk about our top 5 movies of 2014. Wil and I are not film critics, we are film geeks and as you’ll find out in the episode, Wil is not that great at math.

We had a great time looking at films and making this list for our listeners. Not all of these would make a full episode on their own so it’s wonderful to have a show to talk about them and how the fueled our lives this year.
