Front Row with Owen and Paul: Bostin’

Front Row Logo

In the penultimate podcast episode of Front Row, Owen Hughes and Paul Rutland cover all of the usual stuff from what is their final radio broadcast of this academic term for Bucks101 Radio.

The podcast has almost everything from the show, including Owen’s review of the Coen Brothers comedy-drama Hail, Ceasar!, Paul’s sports news (including more Russian doping antics) and even squeeze in a chat about the Sunday working hours law. It’s a proper bostin’ episode this week full of mad oi oi banter… ahem…

We’ll be back again next week for the final podcast episode, but there’ll be no live broadcast on Bucks101. Below are the final tracks we’ve played in this series of Front Row! Check out the full playlist of all the songs played in the entire 7 episodes via YouTube.

Failed Critics Podcast: Holy Folk! It’s Inside Llewyn Davis

Oscar Isaac in a still from Inside Llewyn DavisWelcome to this week’s Failed Critics Podcast, and it’s a shorter one than usual as James had to shut up a lot more than usual due to a sore throat. We’re sure many of our listeners will appreciate this improvement.

We’ve only managed to get out and see one new release this week, but [SPOILER ALERT] it’s a great one. The Coen Brothers are back with Inside Llewyn Davis, an exploration of the search for fame in the 1960s Greenwich Village folk scene. Also reviewed this week is the Aubrey Plaza-starring The To Do List, war photography documentary Which Way is the Front Line From Here?, and yet the final member of the team gets around to watching Sightseers.

We also discuss the furore over Quentin Tarantino’s leaked The Hateful Eight script (and the film’s subsequent shelving), and discuss our most anticipated films to come out of this year’s Sundance Festival.
