Hello and welcome to The Popcorn Bucket Podcast! In this week's Pick 'N Mix episode, your boys desperately scan the forest canopy for Predator's telltale shimmer as they tackle series prequel Prey. For future podcast archivists, this is classic episode in which Rob fails to convince Ben to see the funny side of Marley & Me and both end up pitching too-awesome-to-actually-happen sequel ideas.

Pick n Mix: Thor: Love & Thunder Spoiler Special

Hello and welcome to The Popcorn Bucket Podcast! This week, with Rob having finally seen the latest Thor film, we take a long look at Thor: Love & Thunder. We talk spoilers, stormbreaker and screaming goats as our conversation takes us from the heavens to the shadow realm, via Star Wars and Morbius. But do we find it Thorsome or Thorful? Is Rob angling to be an assistant to Michael Giacchino? Can Ben remember far enough back to talk about the movie? All this and more, plus an appearance from everyone’s favourite pod-dog.

Franchise Fatigue? Men in Black

Hello and welcome to another "Franchise Fatigue?" episode of The Popcorn Bucket Podcast!
This week, we're donning our shades, putting on sharp black suits and tackling the Men in Black franchise. Be prepared for discussions about avoiding social faux pas with decapitation, our concern for cockroach welfare and little dudes in big dudes' heads as we attempt to sort the perfect puffs of popcorn from the sad, stale bits at the bottom of the bucket.
With thanks as always to Laurence Owen of Long Cat Media for the theme music.
