June 24, 2017

Hello and welcome the the 30th edition of the main podcast, an episode where Robert suffered a major malfunction and forgot to press record and didn't realise for circa 30 minutes.  Oh how we laughed...

In this episode we take a look at the recent release from Warner Bros and DC, Wonder Woman.  The classic movie, in what was supposed to be a tribute to the recently departed Sir Roger Moore, is The Spy Who Loved Me...unfortunately, we didn't allow for the quality of the actual film!  Our apologies.
