    Back to the Future

    Back to the Future

    "We're were going, we don't need roads!" ... but we do need to spend at least an hour chatting about 80's time travel classic Back to the Future. From concept through to execution we lift the lid on this tested family favourite with 1-star reviews, a fair quantity of debate over the merits of the other movies in the series, and the realization that, according to this movie, a white teenager invented rock n roll ... sure.

    Intro Music: Back to the Future, Alan Silvestri ℗© 1985 Geffen Records

    Outro Music: The Power Of Love, Huey Lewis and The News ℗© 1985 Geffen Records

    Typography

    Typography

    We're breaking it down to the letter, crossing the t's and dotting the i's, writing it up and writing it down ... yeah, it's time to talk Type! This one is longer than normal but then it's not often we do a deep dive into something that's been around since the DAWN OF TIME! And there's a quiz and they always throw our timings off. 

    So if you want to know the difference between and En Dash and an Em Dash, or you're curious about why an ampersand is an ampersand, or you want to be amazed by the lengths samurai would go to prove themselves worthy (that's in the bloopers btw) then hit play and enjoy. 

    Intro Music: The Typewriter, Leroy Anderson ℗© A Geffen Records Release; This Compilation 1997 UMG Recordings, Inc. 

    Outro Music: My Type, Saint Motel ℗© 2015 WEA International Inc.

    The Third Man

    The Third Man

    Vienna, 1949. Still ravaged by the ravages of the second World War, the once beautiful city is bruised and battered but still standing, hints of her former glory still present even as the Americans, British, French, and Soviets portion her up. 

    This is the stage for the Third Man, British Noir excellence which has been ranked as variously, "the greatest British film of all time" and "the second best British film ever" ... so it's really good!

    We explore the twisty world of Harry Lime and chums and along the way learn a little bit about what it was like to make a film in the true golden age of cinema.

    Intro Music: Harry Lime Theme, Anton Karas, ℗© 1997 Elite Special

    Outro Music: Holly Gets Drunk at the Casanova Club, Anton Karas, © 2017 Stage & Screen

    We've been thinking and are both in agreement - email is where it's at ... at ... ? ... no? Oh fine! We're still gonna take this episode to explore the wonder that it Electronic Mail though. 

    From its humble origins displacing flag waving hot air balloonists, to the pervasion of spam, we're doing it all. You'll be subjected to SMTP, POP, IMAP, BLT, R.E.S.P.E.C.T. the works! So grab yourself a cold one, kick back and relax and leave it to us to CC you through.

    The French Connection

    The French Connection

    "Popeye is here!" 

    Everyone relax, we're back with the '71 gritty, suspense-filled cop drama The French Connection. We're walking the mean streets of a pretty grim new York city as we try to work out just what the hell is going on in William Friedkin's classic. 

    With one-star reviews, no small amount of gushing and the answer to that perennial question - is it still a car chase if you're chasing a train - we hope you'll enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it. And if not? No biggy, there's another episode in 2 weeks.
