This sort of podcast is our bag baby. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Liam, Ethan, and Georgia, as we defrost from the swinging 60s into the cynical 90s in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.  We're trying to avoid getting our mojo crossed with fembots in our 121st episode as we discuss:

  • The famous child of the theme song's composer
  • If this film has aged as badly as we feared it would have
  • Whether Ian has better comedic timing than Mike Myers & Liz Hurley
  • The strength of the collection of licensed music
  • We get deep about flags as symbols, consistency of consent, 
  • Ian notices a ton of things from the UK edit that weren't in the North American version
  • We ask who's the more interesting character: Austin Powers or Dr. Evil
  • Whether Vanessa is the worst secret agent ever
  • We discuss an almost casting that completely changes the tone of this film
  • Ian has an update on Princess Leia's gold bikini from last week
  • Whether or not Return of the Jedi is the Best Film Ever.
