    Episode 0024 – Films

    Way back before portable electronic devices, nestled amongst toys, TV and playing with friends – films played a huge part of our earlier lives. Back then watching a film was an event, both the process and the screening. In this episode we recall the sweet sweet memories – and reflect – was there really no bad films (apart from Fantasia)…?

Very amusing, good banter between the hosts.

I love listening to podcasts that talk to an era gone by and this is definitely one of the better ones.

A good balance of knowledge and research for the shows and the hosts bounce of each other well (including taking the piss when required).

Lots of fun

The conversation flows in interesting directions, very funny and nice memories.
