Episode 39 of The Electric Shadows Podcast is the agony and the ecstasy.
The agony comes from Rob Daniel, who talks (at length) about his ongoing recuperation following surgery after a particularly non-heroic “sports injury”.
The ecstasy comes from myself who, being of sound body (and mind, so to speak) was able to see Black Panther – aka Contender for the Biggest Film of 2018, aka Contender for the Most Culturally Significant Film of 2018, aka The Film You Really Should Have Seen By Now. So I let Rob D. know all it while he listens bravely without sounding too despondent.
These intrepid casters in pod then tackle a brace of disappointing Netflix sigh-fi efforts: Mute and The Cloverfield Paradox. I get nostalgic about the time Mute director Duncan Jones praised me for my geek cred in a director’s Q&A, and we both recall how wonderful Jones’ Moon is.
Amidst all this banter, there is room for a cameo appearance from Rob D.’s flatmate, Michael. Michael’s severe cold means background coughing makes a fleeting appearance. He also chips in some real words.
