As President of Marvel Studios and producer of every single Marvel Cinematic Universe film to date (all 23 of 'em, if you're reading this before May 2020), Kevin Feige has been a fundamental part of the MCU's rise and rise. Culminating with their crowning glory, the biggest film of all time, Avengers: Endgame.

episode 576: #377 - Simon Amstell


Former Never Mind The Buzzcocks host Simon Amstell, who used to host Never Mind The Buzzcocks, pops by the podbooth this week for an interview in which his stint on Never Mind The Buzzcocks isn't mentioned once.

Instead, he tells Chris Hewitt about how he made his new film, Benjamin, and along the way they attempt the world's first director's commentary entirely from memory. It doesn't go well...

episode 574: #376 - Gurinder Chadha and Viveik Kalra


On this week's show, we invite Gurinder Chadha and Viveik Kalra onto the pod to wax lyrical about The Boss or, more specifically, their new film Blinded By The Light - guaranteed to put a Springsteen in your step. Meanwhile, Chris, James and Helen stand up in defence of some underappreciated classics (love Kurt Wimmer's Equilibrium or GTFO) and Chris gives us his reaction to news of the upcoming Event Horizon TV series ("Do you see? DO YOU SEE?!")...
