Kevin Smith

This week's episode sees the host of the best damn movie podcast in the world sit down... with Kevin Smith. Just a little joke, there. No, we were delighted that the legendary Mr. Smith, in town following a sell-out live edition of Hollywood Babble-On at the O2, no less, found time to drop by our newly-built studio for a chat with Chris Hewitt and Ben Travis. This is just the tip of the iceberg – a longer version of this interview will be up as a special in a couple of days.

Then, Chris – a man whose idea of hardcore music is that Crowded House song where Neil Finn uses fuzzy guitar – also talks to Brian Welsh and Lorn Macdonald, star of this week's excellent Beats, a movie about Scottish rave culture in 1994. And back in the podbooth, he sits down with James Dyer and Ben Travis to talk about the week's movie news, review John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, and answer the burning question on absolutely nobody's lips: which Muppet would be the tastiest?
