One of our listeners, @reluctant_gent, wrote us an excellent piece on his blog as his way of answering our previous Question of the Week. What a lovely bloke! You can find it here.
Episode 26 - The A-Team
It’s our final episode for a while and what better way to see us out than with Joe Carnahan’s “The A-Team”? We also go through This Week in Box Office History and ask another Question of the Week. Listen! Enjoy!
