Welcome to the 31st episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! In this week’s episode we talk about Okja and Baby Driver.

Leftover Popcorn is a weekly podcast dedicated to the world of moving pictures. Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder share a passion for everything, both weird and wonderful, from the world of television and cinema, and as such we’ll be discussing an eclectic mix of topics in the weeks and months to come.

The podcast itself is built with a very simple structure, with the hosting duties shared, each episode is built around a mixture of three or four regular segments. The segments rotate from week to week leaving discussion open to new releases in film and or TV, classics from both the big and small screen, broader discussions on influential figures and their work, previews of upcoming releases, and more.

Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.

Before you dive in and start listening, let’s take a closer look at the subject of this week’s main segment.

Okja (2017) – Joon-ho Bong

The second English-language film from acclaimed Korean director Joon-ho Bong tackles the relationship between humans and meat, and the wider natural world around us. Presented with a fantastical and absurdist tone, with plenty of recognizable faces, Okja is a movie that won’t be forgotten very easily.

Baby Driver (2017) – Edgar Wright

The latest from director Edgar Wright, Baby Driver has become one of the summer’s breakout hits by combining A-list talent, with a catchy soundtrack, and thrilling car chases.

Be sure to return next week when we’ll be back to talk about the return of Game of Thrones.
