The Empire Podcast #2 Is Here!

John Carter, MIB III, Avengers & more!

Thanks to everyone who listened to and downloaded the very first Empire Podcast following its debut last week. We were, albeit briefly, the no. 1 podcast on the UK iTunes Store, and are chuffed with your responses thus far.

And so, without any further to-do, as Carlito Brigante might have it, here we proudly present the second Empire Podcast! This week, Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, Nick de Semlyen and Phil de Semlyen (who may or may not be a relation) dissect the week's big releases, including John Carter, The Raven and Bel Ami, and also talk shop about the new Men In Black III trailer, Avengers Lego, and the nominations for the Jameson Empire Awards.

There's also a kick-ass competition that will appeal to Hunger Games fans in particular, the latest in our reader-made jingles, and enough uses of the word 'Jeddak' to make us think that we might owe the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate some cash.

All podcasts are available to listen to on our Soundcloud channel where it can also be downloaded as an MP3 file. It's also on iTunes... now!

P.S. You can email us at with any thoughts, queries, suggestions, competition answers and deafening praise.
