Houston may have a problem but for us, failure is not an option.  Join your favourite transatlantic podcasting duo - Ian & Liam - as we blast off on the 1995 Ron Howard spectacular, Apollo 13.  We're short a permaguest as Georgia is off this week but we've got Ellie riding shotgun to discuss a film with 2 distinct takes (and we discuss them both in depth).  It's a 17th Episode that shoots us around the moon.  Join us as we discuss:

  • How exactly do you pronounce Gary Sinise's name?
  • The lengths that Ron Howard went to in order to preserve historical accuracy
  • Early casting choices for Jim, Fred, and Jack's characters
  • When the film is called 'Apollo 13', how much do we really care about what's going on back down on Earth?
  • Which member of our cast cried multiple times viewing this film?
  • The history of chalkboards and whiteboards in various country's school systems
  • Tom Hanks' impressive filmography
  • If "Apollo 13" is the best space film ever.
  • If "Apollo 13" is the Best Film Ever.
