'Wonka' Director Paul King & Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy interviewed, 'Wonka' reviewed, Your Tip Top 5 Musicals & more!

Episode 25,   Dec 07, 2023, 05:41 PM

This week, it's a 'Wonka' special as Jon Brown & Paul Marsh present a deliciously sweet treat of an episode, that is a confection full of sugary 'Wonkalicious' goodness!  

For our latest show, your (hopefully) favourite film flavoured Podcast contains our full (spoiler free) review of 'Wonka' ahead of it's release in cinemas and theaters Worldwide, plus we catch up with 'Paddington', 'Paddington 2' & 'Wonka' Director Paul King for a chat about the movie, joined by one of the most magnificent Singer / Songwriters working today, Mr Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy - who has written all of 'Wonka''s toe tappingly brilliant songs. 

There's also a wonderful interview from our good friend Hayley Donaghy as she waxes lyrical on 'The Lazarus Project' Season 2 with the show's Writer Joe Barton and there's all your usual agenda items including a moderate pick 'n' mix of News, Trailer Talk, the latest releases at the Cinema, on Streaming, Digital, 4K, Blu-Ray and DVD releases too.

And, rounding us out is an all singing, all dancing Tip Top 5, in which we read out YOUR Tip Top 5 Musicals (and no we don't break into song randomly in order to announce them, although, we probably should have done).

All this and more, tightly wrapped up in this week's candy covered instalment of 'We're Gonna Need A Bigger Pod'!
