Welcome to the home page of The Black Dog Podcast.

Join Lee, Darren, Jim and Elton as they waffle, wonder and jabber on about film, geek news, video games and any other tangential rubbish that springs to mind. Before reviewing a movie from yesteryear removing either the Rose-Tinted Specs or a Shit-Covered Goggles, to see if the film was really as good (or bad) as popular opinion would have you believe.

This week Jim has some words for the transport company running the Trans Pennine Express... Especially the use of the word "Express". Elton suffers at the hands (or comments) of arm chair world war 2 aviation "experts". While Darren plays knock off PokeMon (or is that Pikey Mon?) in the form of PalWorld. He also has an uncomfortable time watching Emma Stone in Poor Things in the cinema. Lee on the other hand is having a whale of a time cleaning patios in a video game, namely Power Wash Simulator...

Add to that some updates about republishing Blackdog Version 1, guessing how close we are to the apocalypse based on the price of Freddo Frog chocolates, some woefully inaccurate reporting of world news events and moaning about how loud pubs are and you'd think that was the podcast done. 


Air fryers continue to plague the discussion to the point it is now being considered about pivoting the cast to simply a cheap ass cooking show.

But in the end we do get back on track as our unofficial "Eat the rich" theme continues as we review the "subversive" darkly comedic thriller Ready or Not
