Great movie podcast

The Retro Ramble is a fabulously entertaining nostalgic film podcast from the McGhee brothers. The guys do what it says on the tin: a very fond and humorous reminiscence - with that Brit quirkiness that is particular to this side of the pond - of the movies from our adolescence (especially if that childhood is during 80s/90s). It’s like getting together with old friends and looking back on great times. Brilliant and unequivocally recommmended.

Great pod

Great podcast listening to two brothers waffle on about classic movies is what I call quality entertainment

A joyous romp through film history

These boys know their stuff. They share the blood soaked, anguished crying, bullet spattered love of 80s\90s action films that all of us of a certain age do. What I love about this podcast is the level of knowledge delivered in a relaxed and joyous style, perfect balance of geek/chic/freak. Podcast equivalent of a three Boobed alien 👍
