Empire Podcast #384: Dolly Wells (Live), Joaquin Phoenix (Not Live)
By Chris Hewitt Posted 9 days ago
This week sees the first-ever Empire Podcast tour roll into Chris Hewitt’s spiritual home, Liverpool. And, in a fun-packed show at FACT in front of a sold-out audience, Chris, Helen O’Hara and James Dyer discuss the week’s movie news (including Spidey’s return to the MCU), review Joker, Judy, and Good Posture, and take a whole heap of audience Qs.
They’re also joined by Dolly Wells, actor-turned-director, whose train got into Liverpool just in time for her to talk about her first film behind the camera, the rather wonderful Good Posture. Plus, back in the studio, John Nugent talks to some bloke called Joaquin Phoenix about some movie in which he plays a clown. Sounds like a laugh. Everyone loves clowns.
And after last week’s sound snafu in York, you’ll be delighted to know this one sounds better, although some mic hiss does intrude towards the end. Hopefully it won’t spoil your experience too much. Enjoy.
