Damn the man! Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ethan, and Georgia as we're heading into work early to do some calculus before Rex Manning shows up in the 1990s classic, Empire Records.  We feel the need to explain AJ's art to you in our 117th episode as we discuss:

  • What the first piece of principal photography for this film was
  • Which other 90s classic did Regency turn down, choosing to make this instead
  • Which cast members were actually family to each other
  • We discuss the art of a mixed tape
  • Ian asks if the Oscars are relevant anymore and we have a philosophical debate about what recognition means - the award or the airtime
  • We once again discuss the difference between Best Film Ever and Favourite Film Ever
  • Whether or not Empire Records is the Best Film Ever.
