Skits and monologues butter each ramble. A-sides run about 90 minutes; B-sides roughly half that. New release every Thursday! Follow @doublepontificati ...
 
From two movie obsessed brothers comes the ultimate celebration of cinema and the largely pointless yet magnificent joy of making lists about it. Opinions, Top 10’s, random facts and anecdotes all drawn from the brains of men who can quote Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars, Zulu, The Princess Bride and yes, Midnight Run from beginning to end. Tell your friends, tell people you are slightly indifferent to, tell people you actively despise and remember, there’s no such thing as a guilty pleasure.

Nanny Bea lives in a cottage she calls Dave and likes nothing more than telling stories, except maybe rich tea biscuits (which are far from rich and taste nothing of tea). Crammed full of professional character voices to engage, inspire and occupy young minds (4-10 in human years) with stories and banter written to uphold values such as kindness and respect, oh and silliness, lots and lots of silliness. We pretend the episodes range from 8-25 minutes to give you variety not because we lack t ...
