When you wish upon a star… you notice some pretty weird stuff that you missed as a kid. Listen along this week as we watch everyone’s favorite puppet become a real boy – and talk about how Pinocchio is both exactly how we remembered it, and infinitely more terrifying.

This week on Talkin’ Tuong, we go on a grand visit to a beloved 6 season show that got itself a movie with 2019’s Downton Abbey (now streaming on Crave). Join Tuong and Quarantine Buddy/Life Pal Laura Gordon (Disney Dummies) as one of them gets to revisit a familiar and juicy dramatic world they enjoy, and the other tries to figure out why everyone in this movie is so horny for English royalty.

What’s this??? IIIITTTTSSSSS TIIIIIIIIIMMMMMEEEE!!! The Improv Punch Up is BACK!!!! Leslie and Tuong resurrect the show for a very special SONIC THEMED episode! Get ready for a brand new version of YOUR FAVOURITE HEDGEHOG just FILLED with Robots, Italian Art Knockoffs, a BUNCH of cocaine. and of course…..a BRAND NEW Re-Re- Design of Sonic! Get ready folks, cuz it gets bloody!

Talkin’ Tuong returns in it’s first episode of the decade to talk about a very eventful month!

Join Tuong La as he goes solo to ramble about all the news that came out in January as well as Adam Sandler’s Uncut Gems, Sam Mendes’s 1917, and the nightmare that everyone can’t stop talking about…CATS!

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!

10 years of movies, that can’t be THAT hard to Rank right?…right?
The 2010 decade is coming to an end and, looking back, the movie landscape has shifted and changed drastically in the last 10 years. The Twenty-Tens gave rise to streaming, obligatory sequels, reboots, and shared universes; while many smaller indie films struggled to break through the box office. The amount of content we face these days is endless so coming with a list of our favorites was a tough one (especially since it’s been such a great decade for movies).  So join us as Tuong La and Sassy Cinephiles Taylor Fleming, Stephanie Ridgeway, and Sean Mulhern pull out all their movie knowledge and rank down the behemoth of a list that is Top 5 Movies of the 2010 Decade!

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!

Summer Loving, Summer Dreaming, Summer Ranking

We’re finally almost here! Summer is upon us and we could not be more excited to finally enjoy all the joys that this season brings us. So get off your beach butts & grab your limed-up Coronas and join Tuong La and Rays of Sunshine Evelyn Barbr, Hayley Kellett, and Jesse Bergen as they cap off our quartet of seasons episodes and rank a list of the Top 5 Best Things about Summer!

Wait a sec.. Green book? That can’t be right..

[Warning: This episode contains some minor spoilers]

The Academy has had one of it’s most controversial years yet. Just when you think they finally “get it” they manage to take one step forward and two steps back. From everything surrounding the hosting, to subtracting and re-adding categories to the main program, to the Best Movie they chose, it’s clear that this whole awards show is kind of a hot mess. However, it’s not all cloudy skies! While this year may not have had the strongest line up of movies, it still gave us some real humdingers which we are here today to share with you! Join Tuong La and True Oscar Winners Desiree Connors Warmington, Taylor Fleming, and Leslie Cserepy as they celebrate PodCavern & Ranked’s second birthday, and rank the Top 5 Movies of 2018!
