Podcast #128: Netflix’s Cash/Nixon and Bob Marley, C4’s The First, Carlos Ezquerra

Nov 10, 2018, 07:40 AM

Is Netflix’s new rockumentary series Remastered up to BBC4 music doc standard? We look for things we don’t know in their episodes on JOHNNY CASH’s relationship with Richard Nixon and the attempted murder of BOB MARLEY. The producers of House Of Cards stage a realistic Mars shot in THE FIRST – but is the myth-making too earnest? And Andrew gets all excited about a lost gem of comic books from the late 2000AD artist CARLOS EZQUERRA, a spaghetti western for kids called El Mestizo.

Special guests JUDE ROGERS of The Guardian and New Statesman and JAMES MEDD of The Times – veterans of the late lamented WORD magazine both – join Siân and Andrew for this week’s pop culture autopsy.
