    LAMBCAST #441: BRING A DISCUSSION TOPIC

    What do you do when you host a podcast, but there are no big movie releases and no obvious tie-ins to current events? It’s simple, you do a show on pretty much anything, and we call them Bring A Discussion Topics.

    Whilst Jay was off gallivanting around Wales, Richard stepped into the hosting chair and was joined by Audrey, Howard, Todd and Vern to cover every aspect of the movie-loving experience, from theatres to...

    LAMBCAST #436: CHILDHOOD MOVIES

    Jay and Richard were joined by Getter, Audrey and Zoe to list their top 3 films they each loved when they were kids, a topic that was more difficult for some than others. Also on...

    LAMBCAST #419: AVA DUVERNAY DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE

    We’ve held many director retrospectives on the Lambcast but, somewhat unforgivably, we’ve never covered a female director. Well all that changes today, because this week’s show is dedicated to the works of Ava DuVernay.
