    Simon does it solo

    Simon does it solo

    Simon is without Dan this week. Probably for the best. He rabbits on about the new Netflix movie Trigger Point for a bit. Then he tells you about three movies he is excited about coming to the cinema this year. None of those movies have space laserss or laser guns that go ‘pew’ ‘pew’ ‘pew’. Not sure why he bothered.

    Am I OK?, Land of Women, & The Bear

    Am I OK?, Land of Women, & The Bear

    Folks, it is a quiet-as week for a podcast without hot takes on Inside Out 2. But we make do. Simon finally relented and watched The Bear. Spoiler: He digs it. So, we talk about that on the pod too.

Neil B Johnson ,

Positive!!!

The accents are a bit hard to understand for a US / UK listener (they talk fast) BUT the show is positive and it doesn’t talk down to the listener. Very balanced and positive. One of My new regular Podcasts.
