Mr. Casserly looks at the new Chris Morris release  'priests with guns' on show Brass Eye. It is one you don't want to miss. Check it out below.

Graeme and Paul take a look at Dan Carlin's podcast Hardcore History's  latest episode 'Painfotainment'. The podcast looks at the importance of pain in drama and entertainment. Carlin ask's when does it get too real? Just a warning - this episode has very intense subject matter so it's not for the faint of heart. Check it out here.

And the Kings Arms is closing next week. Graeme and Paul have a look at the iconic gig venue that is sadly closing its doors next Wednesday.
