This episode is a return to our DVD commentary format as Kieran and I talk about the Don Bluth classic 'An American Tail'.
Okay, buckle your seatbelts, listeners as I return to the wonderful world of Steve Spielberg, specifically his film 'Duel', but this time around approaching it slightly different to the way Kieran and I talked about it in 2015 (yes, it was that many years ago). This time around I'm doing it as a DVD commentary, so it's uninterrupted audio with no edits, which means you can expect more than a few tangents. Enjoy!
