Books into Films

Alex and I discuss our favourite books we would like to be turned into films or even TV shows. We look at possible casting for our favourites, as well as where we think they would sit in terms of the current crop of films and tv shows being spat out at a canter. As per, we go off on random tangents discussing Corrie & Eastenders, Game of Thrones, misendeavours of previous incarnations, animation and food. We also play some very dubious linked music to films that were originally books! ...

Interview with Author Rob Radcliffe

I am delighted to have been able to interview; and chat to, one of my genuine favourite authors, Rob Radcliffe over Skype Rob has written some exceptional books, covering Lad Lit, Fantasy and semi-autobiographical. We discuss the reason we came into contact and the point at which Rob moved forward with his love of writing. We talk about his thought processes when writing a book, his muses and inspirations, as well as what gives him the ideas for his books and how writing sequels/prequels to his books proves harder than the first. Rob is candid and open and a genuinly amazing guy to talk to, giving some amazing insight into the life of a self published author; which we cover, and how he feels about seeing his books on the digital shelf, so to speak. Rob also gives some excellent advice on how to begin writing a book... I really would encourage anyone to download his free books on Amazon, Meat Market (one of my all time favourite books!), Rant! and Checking Out part 1, as well as absolutely downloading the rest once you are done, you really wont be disappointed! ...

Feel the Force Day - Charity Comic Con

Alex and I are joined by the awe inspiring guys behind the worlds ONLY fully inclusive Comic Con, Feel the Force Day, Simon & JJ. We worked with the guys on last years event and did a previous podcast about the charity and convention, so this was like old friends meeting up for a chat. Not only do we cover the awesome plans for expansion of the Con, the amazing work they have done, the reasons why they do what they do and the origin of the whole day, but we also find out that JJ has never seen Fireman Sam, what the guys think about Pontypridd (and their hilarious shenanigans!), Simons revelation about Dr Who and Scott from The McCormicks, JJ's facination with sweet wrappers and kids shows, the awesome guest lineup coming to this years event, curry cupcakes (this is a real thing!) as well as some nice little "nuggets" about the future of the con and the charity. These guys are amazing people and what they do is nothing short of spectacular. Check out JJ's amazing parody of 7 Seconds too! Have a listen and then go buy tickets for the Con. £4 a ticket?

Disney pt 2

Alex and I WALTz (get it...) down Disney Main Street once more, looking at Disney films from a slightly different (and often via a ludicrous tangent) way. We talk about Disney's old films continuious ploy to kill off someones family member and use that as a way to push the character forward, we look at the Anti-Heroes and heinious villains in the old and modern day films as well as give Alex 30 seconds to name as many Disney films as possible (he fails miserably btw!) With tangents including shots being fired at Harvey Weinstein, Alex's mission to drag us off topic at every opportunity, shots fired at Nick Grimshaw, Angela Lansbury as a sexy Maleficent and some quirky facts about Disney actors and characters. Add in some excellent, cheery Disney music, and this is not the same Disney podcast as the light and fluffy part 1 from last year. Contains explicit language and insinuations. ...
