Obeying just for the sake of obeying?  That's something only other pods could do.  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Liam, and Georgia (Ethan's been infected by a giant toad) as we travel through rural Spain avoiding communist literature whilst reviewing a legit piece of cinema in Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth.  We're not leaving the lock undisturbed in our 131st episode as we discuss:

  • Liam's aversion to wanting to watch this week's film
  • The challenges that come with reading subtitles and why this film might have avoided such problems
  • The problems with child actors
  • What to do when films don't necessarily tie everything up in a definitive manner
  • The struggles of Doug Jones (The Faun) whilst preparing for this movie
  • Whether the Faun is called Pan
  • We talk British weather and how it's not as laughable as you might at first think
  • Georgia thinks at least one of us is a muggle as we refuse to believe in the magic
  • Ian goes properly to film school this week as this is on his syllabus
  • Does the casting of actors in the resolution create a plothole?
  • Whether or not Pan's Labyrinth is the Best Film Ever.
