There may be a shortage of petrol, and a run on pasties (at least, we think that's what's happening; we skimmed Newsnight), but there's one thing you can always rely on, no matter how bad things get in the real world: The Empire Podcast.
The fifth episode of our brand-new venture hits today, and it's a cracker. It features Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, Nick de Semlyen and pod newcomer, Dan Jolin, blathering on about the week's movie news, from Anchorman 2 to a dissection of the Jameson Empire Awards and more.
Then we talk through the week's big releases, including Wrath Of The Titans and StreetDance 2 3D.
But that's not all. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Terence Stamp, Peter Lord and Paddy Considine, Wild Bill writer/director Dexter Fletcher and his co-star/bessie mate, Jason Flemyng, dropped in for a very funny and frank chat.
It'll also be available on iTunes shortly. Plus, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts, questions, jingles, suggestions, competition answers and general commentary you may have.
