For 214 it's crime movies. We go from 1967 southern US race tensions in In The Heat Of The Night starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger to the moral ambiguity of Reagan Era LA in William Friedkin's To Live And Die In LA starring William Peterson and Willem Dafoe.

This time around it's musicals. Tansy Rayner Roberts and I go from the rootin' tootin' (not much rootin') western action of Calamity Jane (1953) with Doris Day, Howard Keel and Dick Wesson to the darker musical, Bob Fosse's Cabaret starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Gray. It's a long one this time but we had a lot of fun with it.

This time around, it's pop culture chat with author, rock climber and cave clan emeritus expert Claire McKenna. We talk movies, politics, culture, television, Hollywood and social media in one long stream of semi-conscious. Lots of surprises but nothing dangerous, as Willie Wonka said.
