On another bumper edition of the Empire Podcast, Paddington 2 co-writer and one of BBC's Ghosts, Simon Farnaby, tells Chris Hewitt all about his debut as a children's author, The Wizard In My Shed, while also branching out is David Morrissey, who has launched his very own podcast, Who Am I This Time?, in which he discusses key roles with actors like Alan Cumming, Liz Carr, and David Harewood. Chris' interview with Morrissey (the actor, not the singer) is taken from our one-off live show last week at Kings Place, London, and is included here as a Brucie bonus.
Then, in the podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Alex Godfrey for an epic show that sees the unplanned return of an old favourite, discussion of the best in-joke cameos, and reviews of The Trial Of The Chicago 7, The Boys In The Band, On The Rocks, and Eternal Beauty. And in the news section, we discuss Vin Diesel's singing career, Barry Jenkins directing The Lion King 2 and we foil Kevin Feige's evil schemes by reconvening to discuss this week's Electro-fying MCU news. Your move, Feige!
