      Just noticed my local Cineworld is showing Apollo 11 in IMAX. Looks like there's several locations across the country.

      Could the podcast be made available on Stitcher please? I usually listen on youtube but this is not very data efficient to have on in the car!

      Alexa works really well for me with my Logitech Harmony Hub. It gives me a lot of control over my setup and works generally pretty well (I won't admit it's perfect though). It can be nice to kick off an activity from upstairs and come down to find it up and running

      Any chance you can sort out Cas' microphone? It always sounds slightly muffled to me and I miss the odd word here and there as a result. Volume is fine it's just the sound quality.

      Cheers

      I think Cas is just knackered from the amount of TV and Films he has to watch

      Going to see Apollo 11 on Friday at the IMAX with Laser in Leicester Square. Has a Q&A with the director Todd Douglas Miller following the showing. Cant wait! Apollo 11 Plus Live Q and A | Book tickets at Cineworld Cinemas

      No mention of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York? It's the only film on sale in the most touristy place in Manhattan; the Empire State Building gift shop! It also like Die Hard with a Vengeance, makes use of the city in the plot.

      Nice Podcast as per usual - Cheers!

      Re The best films set in New York;

      Midnight Cowboy
      &
      Do The Right Thing

      are two more that deserve a mention (just ordered a copy of Midnight Cowboy which is why it came to mind)

      Does this mean you’re a werewolf? Stay away from my shrubbery.

      Great show, I think every episode should end with Phil saying “Enough now”.

      Booked for Apollo 11 at Cineworld this weekend, well reminded!

      New York movies:

      Across 110th Street does the dirty 70s vibe well.
      Keeping The Faith is a love letter to NYC
      All the Spider-Man movies showcase the city and illustrate how useless his powers would be on 99% of the world’s surface :laugh:

      Thanks gents.

      Phil - How does your AVR cope with the changing dynamics of your room in view of all the boxes?

      Thankfully Alexa did not go beserk whilst I listened to the podcast on the Sonos Ones in the kitchen. I tend to switch that feature off during mealtimes as the kids are forever asking for Alexa to play " The poo poo " song. Tell your kids at your peril!

      Update - saw Apollo 11 in IMAX

      Jaw-dropping, precisely what the format was invented for.
