We've got more hits this month than a game of Whack-Bat. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian and Georgia - Liam and Ethan are hiding out in the sewers as we review Andrew O's reward for being first in the Patreon Pool in Fantastic Mr. Fox. We're avoiding Chinese food in our 103rd episode as we discuss:

  • Our respective New Year's resolutions
  • Who almost played the part of Felicity Fox
  • What made the voice recording in this film different from most others
  • The sheer volume of photographs needed to be taken for a stop motion picture
  • Ian plays 'guess which Wes Anderson friend plays which part'
  • We unpack the deeper meanings present in the film
  • Georgia and Ian debate whether this is a film made for children or not
  • The origin text for this film
  • Ethan leaves notes and rants about the tropes that always seem to appear in a Wes Anderson film
  • Whether or not Fantastic Mr Fox is the Best Film Ever
