**my normal mic wasn't available as I was on the go!**
Narrated & edited by Bertie Brosnan
In this series I will delve into the very films that shaped me as a person and filmmaker, they began my crusade to become a storyteller. These podcasts are not movie reviews but more experiential recalling. I am interested in how films impact culture and people including myself.
Trading Places is a 1983 American comedy film directed by John Landis, starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy. It tells the story of an upper-class commodities broker and a homeless street hustler whose lives cross paths when they are unknowingly made part of an elaborate bet. Ralph Bellamy, Don Ameche, Denholm Elliott, and Jamie Lee Curtis also star. The storyline is often called a modern take on Mark Twain's classic 19th-century novel The Prince and the Pauper.

Recently, both films were distributed globally through 'Shorts TV'.
