The best podcast around

I love the black dog, it never fails to make me laugh, over the years it has got me through divorce, illness & redundancy (not sure which one off these were the worse) may it never end.

The boys are back in town!

The boys are back. Listen in as the guys review a different film each week and give their witty insightful views on whatever film they’ve watched as well as the listener feedback. Welcome back chaps.

Pass me the soggy biscuit, I’d like to hear the topic...

I was Kevin baconed to this show from the great derelict podcast and jumped on at the Children of Men episode. (One of my favourite films - side story I have a screen used rifle from that film.) I enjoyed the show, but I’d have loved a heads up at the beginning that there was going to be an hour of soggy biscuit before the topic starts. Im sorry you missed your blue zone gig and I’m happy your dog had his legs fixed but as the great Rocky B from Blazin’ Squad once said “when can we get on with the discussion about this massively depressing film that has so much cultural relevance to 2021?”

I’ll be back. And in greater numbers.
