The (slightly) relaunched Talkin’ Tuong is here and we are kicking things off with PodCavern fan favorite…Samantha Leggatt! The whole idea of this new-ish format is to find ways to connect with friends (old and new) in these darker times by talking about something more fun, like the types of art we are consuming more of these days. For the foreseeable future, we will be doing 1 on 1 interview shows with new guests every Monday to discuss the latest pop culture news as well as talk about one movie/tv or show/game/etc. that we both agreed to watch pre-recording. So sit back and enjoy our newest episode about Pixar’s latest movie…Onward!

And the Oscars go to…

First off HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY to the PodCavern! **thunderous applause** It’s been a helluva ride and there are no plans on slowing down this Top 5 train!

Now let’s get down to why we are all gathered here today. Movies. Oscar season is quickly approaching and every year on Ranked’s birthday we do intensive research (aka binge) to discover the best movies of yesteryear. 2019 started off seeming like quite possibly one of the weakest years in movies in a long time, but in the last few months of the decade it managed to put out some truly remarkable films that managed to flip that entire narrative. So join Tuong La and Hollywood Big Wigs Nivala Maharaj, Doug MacKendrick, and Melanie Moshi as they vigorously regale and argue over the best movies of 2019!

This month on Talkin’ Tuong, we take the PodCavern all the way to the West Coast (Vancouver, BC) to visit a regular recurring podcast guest who has only ever skyped in…till now! Listen as Tuong and Taylor Fleming discuss some big pop culture news from November and get chattin’ about Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite, and a certain Disney Plus show that has something to do with Stars and Wars? Listen and find out!
