It’s summer and Game of Thrones is back! So, apart from discussing the new series, we are also chock full of discussion that includes Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled, the third part, War for the Planet of the Apes, in the rebooted Apes trilogy and the BP National Portrait Awards.
Jo Gudgeon and Simon Columb present the show and discuss a broad range of culture topics, including Netflix documentaries, mainstream cinema and the British born artist, Chris Ofili.
Squeezed into a little-shy-of 40 minutes, you are more than invited to join us each fortnight as a fly on the wall to our conversation.
This week’s podcast was recorded live from the Picturehouse Central, so apologies for any sound issues!
