LAMBCAST #437: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT

by Jay Cluitt · July 31, 2018 · Featured, LAMBcast, New Release, Podcasts · No Comments

There’s a lot of podcasts out at the moment covering the latest Mission: Impossible franchise entry, but I’m willing to bet this is the only one to feature three people across two continents simultaneously performing an impression of an obscure side character from Die Hard with a Vengeance, and if you’re not going to listen for that, then I’m not entirely sure what you’re doing here.

Richard and Jay were joined by DJ, Jeanette and – making her long-awaited debut on the show – Amanda “daughter of Richard” Kirkham to discuss the death-defying highs and stomach-churning lows of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, along with their rants and raves of the week and a very espionagey game!
