With great podcast comes great responsibility. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew as we recover from a super-spider bite to talk about the 2002 franchise beginner, Spider-Man.  We're selling our own photographs to the Daily Bugle as a side hustle in our 119th episode as we discuss:

  • The development hell this episode was under 
  • What we thought of Danny Elfman's score
  • Is Tobey Maguire innately likeable or innately dislikable?
  • How do you write organic sounding dialogue?
  • Why was the film rushing Peter's character development by telling, not showing
  • We discuss our personal histories with the film
  • We're joined by a pair of very special guests due to some highly unusual circumstances
  • We name our favourite Spider-Man: Maguire, Garfield, or Holland
  • Liam and Ian often disagree about something. We put that to the test in the first 20 minutes
  • Whether or not Spider-Man is the Best Film Ever.
