Welcome To Earth - Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, and Ellie as we're heading back to 1996 in search of Fruitopia and chess metaphors in the undisputed summer blockbuster, "Independence Day."  We're saying 'Hello boys, I'm back' in our 76th episode as we discuss:

  • The original choice for President Thomas Whitmore and if that guy ever made it to the White House
  • Where did the producers of ID4 get those White House sets from anyways?
  • We have a divide among gender lines regarding a couple of scenes
  • We do a deep dive on Whitmore's big speech rallying the troops
  • We question many of the decisions made by and regarding Randy Quaid in this film
  • We've got some very minor characters who are actually BFE/TTM alumni if you look close enough
  • We ask if David Levinson is still a way cooler guy that Steven Hiller
  • We ask if a stripper is technically considered a sex worker
  • We ask how does Jeff Goldblum have chemistry with everyone in this film
  • We regret how Connie disappears in the 3rd act
  • We hope that the President's daughter is supeaking in metaphor and we tell you who she grew up to be
  • Liam is equally stunned by who played Jimmy as who was supposed to play him but dropped out - so much for always being there for us!
  • We have some aftershocks from Liam's 10 for Grease last week
  • We celebrate passing 20,000 downloads and Ian makes his next wager on a milestone celebration film
  • Whether or not Independence Day is the Best Film Ever
