RADIO SHOW - The Debrief

A weekly radio show talking all things film on local Manchester radio, FuseFM, hosted by myself and fellow cinephiles Lily Talbot and Loz Pontone. My favourite episodes include:

God Save The Queen - British Cinema, The Exploitation of the Working Class & 'Back to Black'

A Whole New World - Our Favourite Animations, Studio Ghibli & Disney Remakes
