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!
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!
Zombies aka The Living Dead aka Biters aka Creepers aka (a thousand other ghoulish names) has permeated mainstream culture in a big way for decades, especially when George A. Romero launched his vision of what we perceive as the “modern zombie” today. Whether it’s your slow shuffling zombie to your horrifyingly fast flesh eating zombie, there has been a number of different haunted takes throughout all types of fiction and mediums. On this year’s Spookifying Halloween special of Ranked, join Tuong La and Undead Creepers Angus MacDonald. Samantha Leggatt, and Taylor Fleming as they celebrate these pop-culture monsters, eat the brains of the living, and come up with the Top 5 Things Featuring Zombies.

In a PodCavern first, there will be no live-stream episode of Talkin’ Tuong this month. Don’t worry we’ll all be okay, there there. *group hug* BUT FEAR NOT!

We’ll be back next month for a new LIVE episode!

22 films that we love 3000!
11 years ago there was an idea, an idea to create a shared universe of remarkable movies based on comic books that would change everything in pop-culture and cinema as we know it. Like it or not, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not only the largest franchise in movie history but also has redefined genres, reinvigorated comics, and inspired people all over the world. With Avengers: Endgame, we have finally seen the “Infinity Saga” come to and end, and while there are more comic book movies that will surely come out, we have truly reached an end of an era. This week join Tuong La and the Assembled Avengers Matt Barrow, Stenley Philippe, and Stephen Peeling as they celebrate the last 11 years of MCU movies and use the Infinity Gauntlet to snap together a Top 5 list of the best moments!
