Wagging the tail of geekdom

Welcome to The Black Dog Podcast. Join your hosts Lee & Darren, accompanied by in-house jingle singer Darren Diamond. From film news to video games, if its on our minds its in your ears. There is also a feature "Rose Tinted Specs" where we will revisit classic films, TV shows etc and ask do they deserve their classic status or is it a case of childhood whimsy informing that opinion? So take a listen... And remember there's no receipt so you can't ask for this time back.
