Comedy Podcasts >

Simon and Mat used to spend hour in the pub discussing movies. So they started recording it, mainly as an excuse to go to the pub, and the movies. So Admit One has turned into a modest little podcast with a couple of unique twists. One, it is still recorded in a pub, and two it is made by real film fans, not paid critics. Mat and Simon have their own thoughts and their own take on things, which sometimes doesn’t jibe with the status quo, or each other. There is also the “DVD Shelf of Truth and Justice” where one suggests a film that they think is essential to have in your collection, and the other has to decide to accept it. Sweary, opinionated, and sometimes mildly drunk, Admit One is a movie pod that comes at you from the heart of the UK Moviegoing experience: Swindon.

Murder on the Orient Express brings together an all star cast (and Johnny Depp) in a classic tale of skulduggery and murder. Mat took a look and, like Poirot in a dining room, gives us his opinion.
