So it’s come to this: an Ultra Culture podcast. In my very first show (coming to you sort-of-live from the 65th Cannes Film Festival) I’m joined by Little White Lies reviews editor David Jenkins, who failed to provide an adequate headshot, leaving me no option but use this photograph of him dressed as Father Christmas that I found on Facebook. In the show, we discuss our feelings about the runtime of Moonrise Kingdom, survey the puns on offer in Shrek 2 and generally badmouth Vitamin Water. There’s also a probing discussion of product placement which is bound to make you view the Hollywood studio system in a whole new light. The podcast was recorded on the balcony above an Italian restaurant at 9pm so don’t forget to listen out for the various street performers who make surprise appearances throughout. We’ll do the next one in an ‘indoor space’, I promise.
