Our guests Isabel Hilton and Ivor Gaber discuss Nicolas Maduro’s win in Venezuela. Plus we preview of the upcoming presidential election in Mexico, discuss the Italian coalition and why it’s becoming so expensive to get married in Hong Kong.
Robert Bound heads down to the Tate Modern for its new show ‘Shape of Light: 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art’, where he meets curator Simon Baker and artist Barbara Kasten. Back in the studio he’s joined by Kathlene Fox-Davies and Francesca Gavin to discuss the show and photography as an art form.
He’s back! Love him, hate him, everybody can agree that he’s the sharp-witted, fast-talking, wise-cracking SOB that the world needs right now. But enough about Empire’s Nick de Semlyen — Deadpool is also back, in the stunningly unimaginatively titled Deadpool 2, and in our latest spoiler special, Chris Hewitt assembles his very own X-Force to talk about the film in spoilerific detail. There’s Helen O’Hara, James Dyer, and — yes! — Nick, talking through the film’s key talking points, and answering some of your questions into the bargain.
But that’s not all. This episode also features an in-depth chat between Chris and the man who, quite simply, is Wade Wilson — Deadpool 2 writer/producer/star/bloke who runs the craft services, Ryan Rodney Reynolds. And they talk about everything, from secret cameos (not Dickie Greenleaf, though; Chris only noticed that on the second viewing, dammit) to major deaths. And they have a lot of fun and learn a little bit about themselves along the way.
So, stick on the chimichangas, sit back, relax, and listen to the podcast that requires minimum effort.
