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.

What can I say, this is a long episode with a lot to process... From great hopeful health news for Jim, to tap drama for Elton, Darren being excited by an air fryer and Lee getting savaged (and possibly super powers) from a rabid squirrel. 

Add to that interesting feedback for last weeks episode and then its on to this weeks movie which is either a parable about greed, class, selfishness and social hierarchy or.... The physical representation of all the music of the 80s (especially Nik Kershaw)...

The Netflix Spanish dystopian scifi horror The Platform...

Again be warned... Its a damn long episode... And the wheels are not even remotely attached.
