    The One With the Old Man That Hates Friends

    The One With the Old Man That Hates Friends

    Kushal and Karan return in 2020 to discuss one of the last two decades' most important topics; Friends - the TV show. 

    They discuss how it's aged over time and why some of the 'jokes' can now be seen as offensive or problematic. Conversely, they also discuss the show's merits, and what positive impacts it has had on society today.

    See You Yesterday Breakdown

    See You Yesterday Breakdown

    Karan and Kushal return for their first across-the-world recording, with Karan now residing in Canada and Kushal from his new home area of Belgium. 
    We break down Netflix film, See You Yesterday, in which two teenage science prodigies spend every spare minute working on their latest homemade invention: backpacks that enable time travel. When one of their older brothers is killed, they put their unfinished project to the test to save him.
    We look at the motivations of the characters, what the film means, and what it is exactly we're watching.

Very Interesting!

If your interested in film, beyond the basics, then you'd love this podcast! A great duo who provide different angles and views, the most interesting talking points in film and a good pinch of humour. Keep it up guys!

Janskki ,

An engaging podcast - bravo

A far cry from the host of typically contrived and over sensationalist movie pod casts out there, with a couple of knowledgeable, fun and amiable hosts. Star Wars pod in particular is awesome. Worth a try y'all

James Lil Drummer ,

Worth a listen

If like me, you enjoy a sometimes silly sometimes informative but always fun podcast or two this one is worth a listen. The guy's format of a topic to discuss each month is a fresh take on podcasts and now the sound is sorted I look forward to receiving some more in my ear holes! Keep it up!
