There's two types of people in this world: winners and losers. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ethan and Georgia - as we review the most warmest dark comedy you'll ever lay eyes on in the 2006 indie darling, Little Miss Sunshine.  We're somewhere on the road between Albuquerque and Redondo Beach in our 96th episode as we discuss:

  • The development hell this film was subjected to and why you couldn't have shot it in Canada, as a studio had previously wanted
  • The amazing story of screenwriter Michael Arndt
  • Who did the studio have cold feet about initially
  • Which member of the cast joined film musicians Devotchka on a future project
  • How the film plants seeds 20 minutes in advance and banks on you forgetting them to draw the biggest laughs
  • We break bad about a couple of cameo parts
  • If anything of us understand the appeal behind child pageants
  • We go to some real places and share some stuff
  • We discuss the fallout from Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Whether or not Little Miss Sunshine is the Best Film Ever.
