Let's Talk About Film Trailers of 2019
Okay so this episode...is a weird one. See the list below for why! 1. The audio is super weird, we're quieter than usual, there's a bit of an echo and there's some white background noise for some reason. None of this showed up in the test recordings. 2. We confused the Kree from Marvel will the Krell from the book we're reading at the minute...so sorry in advance for all that. 3. We were super tired. Other than that, enjoy the episode and don't forget to let us know which trailers so far in 2019 have you pumped!

Second Day of Podmas!
...a rant about their old alma mater, Sunderland Uni! Second day of podmas is here and just for you we...basically rant and bitch about our university and general policies regarding graduation in the UK, but especially ours! Alex didn't bother attending his graduation, but Maggie did and she has plenty to say on the topic! Xmas Ruf - In the Netherlands, Sinterklaas (the Dutch version of Santa Claus) arrives from Spain, not from the North Pole. And that’s not the only weird thing about the Dutch Christmas. Sinterklaas has his little helpers, but they are not adorable hard-working elves: they are black-faced boys and girls who can steal your kids if they misbehave, and bring them to back Spain which is, according to the Dutch, a severe punishment.

First Day of Podmas!
...a summary of their trip to Glasgow! First day of Podmas has arrived and with it, a quick review of our trip up north to see a philharmonic orchestra perform the music of Star Wars Episode VI: A New Hope with the film playing in the background. It. Was. Awesome. We also visited the xmas markets and discovered the absolute heaven that is Tim Hortons, just another reason to move to Canada in the future. These episodes will be shorter and feature a fun xmas fact at the end. The good news? It's December! Xmas RUF - Jingle Bells was written for Thanksgiving, not Christmas. The song was written in 1857 by James Lord Pierpont and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh”. It was supposed to be played in the composer’s Sunday school class during Thanksgiving as a way to commemorate the famed Medford sleigh races. “Jingle Bells” was also the first song to be broadcast from space.

Alex isn't too keen on Harry Potter but enjoyed the tour from a technical aspect of it, all the props and effort that went into the creation of the world-famous franchise was quite interesting.

Let's Talk About Doctor Who Season 11
In today's episode, we talk about their thoughts on Doctor Who Season 11 so far. Some of the episodes up to now have been better, some have been worse. Some have been subtle and others have been a brick over the head with their political messages. We also discuss whether the new direction is in line with the overall feel of Doctor Who and whether it should be used for educational, subtle political messages or should simply be used as an escape from the real world. Things get rather...heated in this episode. Let us know what you think in the comments section below or via social media, links to which can be found in most places!

So today we talk about the surprise multiplayer update Blizzard released for Warcraft III 16 years after its initial release. People expect Blizzard to make a big announcement at their Warcraft III invitational this year, and we'll see some old-school Warcraft players make their triumphant return. Could this be Warcraft 4 or should we be expecting a Warcraft 3 remaster like we saw with Starcraft? Time will tell...

Let's Talk About the Lost in Space Trailer
So today we give you our initial thoughts on Netflix's latest bottom-of-the-barrel-scraping, last-straw grabbing reboot of Lost in Space. Originally aired in 1965 it ran for 83 episodes over three seasons and was fairly well received for the time. Netflix seems to have changed some of the details, included some extra characters and made some changes to the orignals to make it their own. We'll see how well it does when it airs next month!

Let's Talk About the Quentin Tarantino Star Trek pitch
So today we talk about the cup full of awfulness that is the news that Quentin Tarantino has a pitch for an R-Rated Star Trek film...pause for collective global sigh of resignation. Yes, unfortunately we now have to waste our time watching this just to justify our seething hatred...seriously...this is not a happy episode people. I usually have more wit about me when writing these descriptions but...I can't be that guy today. Side note, less sad and slightly redeeming, we have some exciting news at the end of the podcast (shameless blackmail) so stay tuned for that!

Today we talk about an observation we've been pondering for a little while now and that is how TV shows are comparable to our own personal relationships. We just talk about how sometimes there are ups and downs, laughs and tears, sometimes you want to quit but can't and sometimes you've quit but want to go back. Fun.

Let's talk about Marvel vs DC

Let's talk about Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1
So, today we have a discussion about Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1, mainly about the absolute scale of the project and how difficult it's going to be to bring these characters together. Overall, Alex thinks they chose the wrong writers and directors (same guys that did Captain America 2 & 3) but he personally thinks they'll do a decent job of bringing the characters together. Maggie, on the other hand, doesn't have a whole lot of faith that they'll give the depth and complexities of the situation justice.

Let's talk about Marriage
So today we talk about being married at quite a young age, the impact it's had on our lives and the misconceptions from those around us. People seem to have this adverse opinion about marriage that it somehow 'tames' a person or destroys their lives, but we don't feel that's the case. We're not here to talk about how people should be married or how people should be in love, just about our personal experiences. FOREWARNING - This is cheesy.

Let's talk about Being Big Dog Owners
If you've looked on our website or our profiles you'll know that we own a dog. A big, fluffy dog called Duke. We're not sure what breed he is specifically or what age he is (the rescue we got him from didn't have the complete profile) but if you imagine a 7 year old white German Shepherd (we think he's actually either a Swiss Shepherd or a German Shepherd/Samoyed cross) who is totally harmless and lovely. Today we talk about some of the issues of owning a big dog, especially as a young couple, and some of the misconceptions people like us face.
