McNulty leaves the Major Case Unit to patrol the Western District.

    Ella Thompson Fund Special with Carolyn Younce - Director of Development

    As we have been supporting The Ella Thompson fund for this whole season we reached out to them and asked if they were a fan of The Wire and Carolyn Younce, Director of Development, answered with a resounding "YES".
    We invited her on to talk about everything to do with The Wire, mainly around season 4, and the Ella Thompson fund and the kids that they support like Dukie, Michael, Randy, and Namond.

    If you want to donate DIRECTLY to The Ella Thompson Fund you can do so here http://www.parksandpeople.org/get-involved/donate/the-ella-thompson-fund/
    We hope you enjoy this episode and consider supporting The Ella Thompson Fund or other local community charities.

    Kermode on Film x The Wire Stripped

    We have a very special episode featuring The UK's Premier Film Critic - Mark Kermode! Dave, Tom and Kobi enjoy a #Spoiler filled podcast chat to The Good Dr all about the greatest TV show in the world! That is, of course, The Wire!

    Mark famously didn't watch TV, that was until the pandemic happened and everything changed! He watched Breaking Bad first, and it proved to be a gateway drug to the best TV Show ever.
    We hope you enjoy!
