This is a show where Alan Maguire, Sarah Maria Griffin, and Ellen Tannam invite interesting people to tell them all about their thing, how they felt about it then, and how they feel about it now. It's nice, you'll like it.

So what are those things? Well there's This Is Spinal Tap, The Secret History, Red Dwarf, The Replacements, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Barney along with a live reading of some Barney creepypasta...
