This week's episode of The Empire Podcast: Mistakes Were Made sees Chris Hewitt have a chat with Tom McCarthy, the Oscar-winning director of Spotlight and the Disney+ film, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made. And a right good old chat it is, too, as they talk about everything from Portland to Pixar.

Then, back in the remote, socially distant, virtual podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Ben Travis for a rip-roaring episode that takes in everything from fatally cold film shoots to the week's movie news (sequels ahoy!), and post-credit stings that aren't on the end of Marvel movies. They also review the Michelle Obama documentary, Becoming, and the Willem Dafoe dog-umentary, Togo. Oh, and Chris is trying a different sound mix this week, so let us know your feedback. Have mistakes been made? Almost certainly. But we hope you enjoy.
