This podcast was the second piece that we recorded and was by way of an introduction, and lets you know what sorts of things you cn expect.

Robert and Paul discuss their plans for the podcast and are amazed at the number of listeners to the test upload, but not before getting sidetracked onto topics such as home viewing formats past and present, breaking their DVD cherries and whether it is possible to just have one top ten list of films….

Test Podcast: Robocop (Remake) Review

This was our first test piece that was first published on our original site, backtothefeature.podbean.com.

By way of a test of the iPad’s podcast recording abilities, Robert and Paul give the recent remake of Robocop a quick going over.

Please do not judge us too harshly, we just needed to test the initial recording and podcast upload processes.
What this piece lacked in length, it more than made up for with strength of feeling!
