We're Gonna Need A Bigger Pod

Saturday, 8 April 2023 - 2 hours 1 minute

Crikey! We've got another choc-full episode of film appreciating greatness for you this Easter, so why not grab your Nintendo Game Boy, pop on a nice comfortable pair of Nike Air Jordan's and take the fast track via an interdimensional plumbing pipe back to the 80's, as Jon Brown and Paul Marsh precariously navigate the brick block platforms that are this week's new movie releases, inspired by pop culture and sport icons of yesteryear.

Speaking of, the spectacularly brilliant Hayley Donaghy and Madeleine Finlay-Hudson are our super star Guest Interviewers this week. They managed to get the highest score on the leaderboard, by interviewing some of the folks responsible for bringing our childhoods back to life and providing you with our biggest episode for guests yet by having insider chats with the mighty...

Ben Affleck 
Matt Damon
Chris Pratt
Charlie Day
& Anya Taylor-Joy

...discussing Easter Weekend Box Office behemoths 'Air' and 'The Super Mario Bros. Movie' respectively, which Jon and Paul also review, alongside the return of Richard Donner's 'Superman: The Movie' to Cinemas, 'The Portable Door' on Streaming, 'Avatar: The Way Of Water' on Digital and 'Babylon' on 4K Blu-Ray, plus loads more!

The lads will also be court side with the latest News & Trailers, as well as a slam dunk of a Tip Top 5 - 90's Action Movies - as suggested by listener Ali McNiff, so we'll be reading out his, ours and YOURS, but not in the style of Basketball commentators. Because, that would just be weird.  

There's also our GOAT Of The Week and you can find out who won our 'Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves' merchandise competition too, so make sure you listen to hear if it was you!

So grab those Karts, put the pedal to the metal and we'll try not to drop any red shells!
