Episode 54: Hold Me, Steve

This week's big question is: if a tree falls in the woods, are you banging your own mum? But before that: Avengers Infinity War (whole bunch of spoilers, including a spoiler for which Avenger Nathan is in love with), and Netflix series The Rain. Infinity War trailer, if you haven't already seen itVanity Fair longread on Kevin Feige's reign over MarvelWatch The Rain on NetflixSarah's review of Natalie Hayne's novel Children of Jocasta (that's Jocasta in the right of the image)Where to find...


Episode 53: An Army of Thatues

Sarah and Nathan saw Mary Stuart at the Theatre Royal in Bath, and Nathan saw a lot of films on a plane - some of which were good, some of which were not terrible, and some of which were made by Ridley Scott. Plus, Age of Answers! More about Mary StuartTonya Harding profileexplains Where to find us: iTunesStitcheriHeartRadioTuneInAcastGot a question for The Age of Answers, or just want to say hi?

Episode 52: Ready Player Bum

Don't say we didn't warn you. Ready Player One is really, really bad, so it sucks to be Sarah who only got to see that this week. Better times for Nath who also saw Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark with live soundtrack, meaning that we can delve into the mysteries of good Spielberg vs poor Spielberg. There's no Age of Answers this week because there were, shockingly, NO QUESTIONS - make us happy and send us some! Seriously don't botherWhat Nathan sawMolly Ringwald's...


Episode 51: God of Woof

Why is the new Lara Croft movie like a plastic cup? Can a family annihilating demigod achieve character development? And just how should a person be? All these questions and more (including the ones you put to us in Age of Answers via the email below) WILL be answered in this amazing episode of The Mispronounced Item. The trailer for Tomb Raider if you mustbut tbh everything looks good at Cinerama so it doesn't matter that the movie is nonsenseMeet daddy Kratos in the God of War...


Episode 50: Hoist By Our Own Wetard

We're back from Seattle, and here we are with the aural equivalent of your neighbours coming over with the slides from their holiday. This week: things we learned in Seattle (mostly about aircraft, please trust us that this is very interesting), Annihilation the book and the film, Ursula Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness, and (of course) THE AGE OF ANSWERS. Seriously, the Museum of Flight is VERY VERY GOODThe Figuring History exhibition at the Seattle Art MuseumWatch an amazing...


Episode 48: Dog-Related Content

Apologies for being a day late on this due to Nath being ill. Still, we're here now with thoughts on Black Panther (MANY SPOILERS, you have been warned) and You Were Never Really Here (about which we try to say as little as humanly possible, leading to a pretty weird section TBH where we talk about Britpop for ages for some reason), plus The Age of Answers which is of course the best bit. Black Panther is in cinemas nowcolumnAnd so is You Were Never Really HereQueer Eye is on Netflix...


Episode 47: Better With Bean

We watched Mute. We thought it couldn't be as bad as people said, but it is if anything much, much worse. So bad that Sarah argues it should have been more like Mr Bean, and actually has a point. Maximum spoilers here so avoid if you want to watch Mute (but you don't want to watch Mute). Plus a quick rattle through a novel inspired by the life of surrealist artist Leonora Carrington, and Nathan getting excited about The Swapper. Age of Answers includes some career advice and thoughts on...


Episode 45: There Are Dozens of Us!

"It's the intellectual equivalent of separate beds!" says Nathan, meaning he's watched a film that Sarah hasn't and Sarah has read a book he hasn't this week. Cloverfield, Shirley Jackson, and dietary advice for dogs, let's go.
