Podcast: The Punch Up, Ep.24 – ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It?’

This week on The Punch Up podcast, the chaps get all mushy with talk of romance, love and all that good stuff in our post-Valentine’s Day ‘Sucker Punched’ special.

Harold & Maude (1971)
Lost In Translation (2003)
Blue Valentine (2010)
