Podcast: The Punch Up, ep.0 – ‘Sucker Punched’

The Punch Up is a brand new weekly film & television podcast broadc​asting from the laaaazy west coast city of Vancouver, Canada.

Featuring regulars Phill Bartlett, Adam Blair, and yours truly, Nicholas Lay, the chaps and I will be looking to cover regular news, reviews, previews, and retrospect from the world of the reel.

Put ’em up!


Ep.0 – ‘Sucker Punched’

In The Punch Up’s debut/trial episode, ‘Sucker Punched’, the boys discuss what they’ve watched recently; Nick jumps through a chopper to tackle Terminator Genisys in new segment, ‘Taking One for the Team’; monkeys and messy anime are the order of the day in what’s being labelled as, ‘The Sucker Punch’; and to round the things off for the finale there’s the first of our spoiler filled chats on what’s been happening on True Detective S02, covering the first three episodes so far. Enjoy!
