San Junipero with Wes actor Gavin Stenhouse

5/18/2018
More
So here it is, the last episode of Black Mirror Cracked for a while, and we've saved your favourite until last - yes, it's San Junipero! The neon-lit 80s tale of two women falling in love that is not - of course - all that it seems. Actor Gavin Stenhouse (@gavinstenhouse) who plays lovelorn Wes, joins the pod to talk about working on the most beloved (and surprising) of Black Mirror instalments. He was also there with the cast, Charlie Brooker and co when they won the series' first two...

White Christmas with actor Rasmus Hardiker

5/16/2018
More
The episode known as 'the Jon Hamm one' before its much-anticipated debut in December 2014, White Christmas is a collection of Black Mirror lasts and firsts. It's the last of the Channel 4 series, going out well before the news that Netflix would pick up the show. It's the first episode to have a huge American star at its centre; to introduce cookies; and to have a three-part story structure. Joining the pod to discuss his time working on set is actor Rasmus Hardiker (@RasmusHardiker),...

Black Museum's Jack wants a puppy for Carrie

5/11/2018
More
Aldis Hodge (@AldisHodge) joins the podcast to talk about Jack, Carrie, That Monkey and all things Black Museum. A Black Mirror fan before he was sent the script, Hodge jumped at the chance to be part of the show. There's a light-hearted way to look at the episode: Rolo Haynes's ridiculous theatricality, Jack's new girlfriend pinning the monkey up against the wall, "our hands" [groan]. Black Museum also tackles racial politics in Trump's America: a tough subject, but an absolutely...

Re: Black Mirror's Dr Dawson won't apologise for the orgasms

5/9/2018
More
Daniel Lapaine brings 'La Pain' to this episode of the pod for an exclusive - and raucous - interview about his work on Black Mirror. Lapaine - who shot to fame as a dreamy swimmer in 1994 Australian comedy Muriel's Wedding - has a very special place in the Black Mirror universe. He's in not just one, but two episodes. He makes a cameo appearance at the start of Season 1's The Entire History of You, on the interview panel sizing up Liam (Toby Kebbell). He returns to the show to take the...

Wyatt Russell talks Playtest

5/4/2018
More
Wyatt Russell, who plays main character Cooper Redfield, Skypes into the podcast from LA to talk all things Playtest - and also about his favourite episode, the first one he ever saw. Hear what it was like to act out all those scenes in the house of horrors alone, how he subtly changed his character and what he thinks the ending of the episode really means. -- Welcome to Black Mirror Cracked - the podcast for all your Black Mirror needs. We alternate between episode analysis and...

Playtest

5/2/2018
More
It's the gamer one! With Charlie Brooker's background as a video games journalist, it was only a matter of time before we got the horror gaming episode. Wyatt Russell plays Cooper Redfield, a name that'll sound eerily familiar to old-school gamers. To do the episode justice, we've got Daily Mirror gaming experts JC Suttun (@HandleMaverick) and James Ide (@Jymography) in the studio to chase all the many, many gaming references in the episode, look at the how horror games have been covered...

Nosedive

More
Even this podcast gets ratings! Why don't you rate, review and subscribe to Black Mirror Cracked...? Nosedive reflects so much of our world back to us, that we can never escape that eerie feeling while watching it, even though Lacie Pound's (Bryce Dallas Howard) sweet pastel surroundings seem harmless. Showbiz journalist Vicki Newman (@Vicki_Mirror) joins the pod to talk about celebrity culture, Instagram likes and Snapchat streaks. When everything's a performance, a bit of trolling can...

Men Against Fire

4/25/2018
More
Computer games, warfare, skull implants, a rapidly-thinning line between dreams and reality, plus... are those zombies?! Season 3's Men Against Fire could not be more relevant today, with its exploration of how propaganda made real can help soldiers carry out their duties to kill. Even when those duties could later return to haunt and utterly destroy them. Mirror Online games writer and picture researcher, James Ide, returns to the podcast to help unpack an episode that looks a though it...

Shut Up And Dance

4/20/2018
More
Journalists Jo-Anne Rowney and Kyle O'Sullivan carry on from their discussion of White Bear to analyse Season 3's Shut Up and Dance. The episodes both drill down into crime, punishment and vigilante justice. They also toy with the audience, using our natural human need to identify with the protagonist against us. It's all about perspective, like news-writing. Does Kenny deserve his most-likely grim fate? Does Hector deserve his? And who is judging them? -- Welcome to Black Mirror...

Hated in the Nation

More
Let's dive into Black Mirror Season 3, where the show moved from Channel 4 to Netflix. Reddit was quick to pick up on how the images of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sitting in Congressional Hearings, thanks to the Cambridge Analytica investigation, echoed scenes of DCI Karin Parke (Kelly McDonald) giving evidence to a Parliamentary committee in this episode. Mirror Tech's (@MirrorTech) Future File podcast team, Jeff Parsons (@jparsons989) and Shivali Best (@shivalibest), join us to talk...
