SOMEBODY once told me the world was gonna roll me. This week we're heading to Duloc in search of princesses, talking Donkeys and the ultimate payback by embittered former Disney employees in the 2001 Dreamworks classic, Shrek.  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, and Georgia - as we try to figure out what's so bad about a Canadian accent.  It's an all-star of a 68th episode as we discuss:

  • Early casting choices for Shrek (there's at least 2 you don't about)
  • What was the inspiration for the physical appearance of Shrek?
  • Which actor recorded lines for almost the whole film before tragedy set in, necessitating a re-record
  • Which member of the cast was fired only to never find out why
  • Which line is an example of the Mandella Effect
  • We have a Gingy-off
  • Ian might be an ogre or the voice of reason
  • Whether or not Shrek is the Best Film Ever
