Moderate Fantasy Violence
About This Show
Welcome to Moderate Fantasy Violence, a fortnightly podcast about pop culture and the world around it, as discussed by Nick Bryan and Alastair JR Ball. Nick will probably launch into a tangent about comics, Alastair will likely go for politics. Both are equally worthwhile.

MFV #31 - Definitely Better Than Goldie Lookin' Chain
The big three-one! Moving into the thirties with good range, as Nick and Alastair start with brief chat about the poetry of Kate Tempest and Archie-murder series Riverdale. Then it's on to new movie Elle (9:19) which, for anyone sensitive about such content, means talking a fair bit about the film's handling of rape. If you'd rather not listen, you can skip to 25:44 and the album English Tapas by Sleaford Mods, a band Nick hadn't previously heard. Lastly, Alastair's recommendation: Heat (38:46), a 1995 crime epic with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. If you're wondering why there's only three items this episode - the fourth for the fortnight was in MFV #30, an off-schedule special where we talked Logan with guest Chris Brosnahan. It was fun, scroll back in your feed and check it out.
