One last hoorah for our Nine Worlds coverage – this is Nick talking in his hotel room moments before leaving the convention for the year. (With some heckling from his girlfriend.) Cut from our main episode for reasons of length and slight redundancy, but if you want one more chance to experience the con vibe, this is your moment!
(Pictured to the left – our hotel sink, mere feet from where this audio was recorded.)
Episode fourteen! We break our format for the second podcast running, but first, discussion of recent activities involving Twin Peaks and the Hackney Visions festival!
And then we’re into our reflections on the recent Nine Worlds geekfest event in London (4:08), including live on-site audio! Then it’s time to review new superhero movie Suicide Squad (26:08) and take a look back at the whole first season of Preacher (49:57).
It’s our thirteenth episode! We’ve done this for a whole half-year! What better way to mark the occasion than a massive batch of trailers from San Diego Comic Con and the third Sharknado movie?
We’ve also got our first ever guest on the show – we’re talking about Harry Potter And The Cursed Child (6:47), Nick saw the play but Alastair didn’t. So booktuber and mega-Potter-fan Claire Rousseau is coming on to tell us her feelings. There’s a quick no-plot-details opinion-summary at the start, then anyone avoiding spoilers should jump to 46:35, where Nick and Alastair review Star Trek Beyond in the regular MFV way.
And finally, Nick recommends Alastair the video-game-folk-music of Rebecca Mayes (58:29). Is it his sort of thing, or are we headed for another Lebowski-esque clash?
