Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, Ethan, and Georgia as we're heading to Chicago for a day skipping school with Ferris Bueller - whether he's a teenage philosopher or a dangerous psychopath is all a matter of interpretation. We're rolling the miles backward in our 73rd episode as we discuss:

 

  • Which two actors turned down the two lead male roles
  • Liam is an absolute savant with the context this week
  • We learn a lot about the Ferrari used in the film
  • What is the deal with Ferris' parents having Georgia's face blindness?
  • Why John Hughes likes shooting in Chicago so much
  • Where Matthew Broderick got those dance moves for the parade scene
  • We compare Ferris Bueller to other 80s juggernauts, The Breakfast Club and Back To The Future
  • Which album did John Hughes listen to every day of the shoot
  • Which scene did early audiences vote as their least favourite, necessitating a reshoot?
  • The legacy of the music from this film
  • You won't believe a spin-off from this film and who starred in it
  • What is it about Ferris that makes our contributors use profanity in their responses
  • Whether or not Ferris Bueller's Day Off is the Best Film Ever
