#40: Promising Young Woman, Palm Springs, Sound of Metal, BAFTA awards

In the strongest film line up so far this year Conor and Rado discuss three new interesting movies. They take you on a personal journey of a drummer looking his hearing, of a couple stuck in a time loop, and of a woman avenging her friend. No argument is spared this week when discussing Letterboxd rating, so get ready for some sparks flying and name calling.

This episode also marks a milestone when it comes to making live music jingles. All rights reserved, please contact Conor directly for album deals, guest appearances on weddings and bar mitzvahs.
