The Atomic age is upon Blood on the Tracks this month as all sorts of strange radiation-born monsters are invading the perfect utopia that was the 1950s *cough-cough*. Anyway, it was a great decade to be a sci-fi and horror fan, and it was a decade that produced a lot of great film scores. Lee curates a playlist that reflects some of the best examples of this fact, in his opinion.

Lee and Leah find themselves with the daunting task of talking about "Citizen Kane" (1941) -- the film that put Orson Welles on the map, and is often hailed as the greatest film of all time. But is it any good? Does it hold up? Is it a case of style over substance? Do the hosts have anything new to say about this film? Maybe not, but join in anyway to hear their opinions; Lee get in a fight with a moth live on the recording; and what the hosts have watched to as of late.

Lee and Leah are joined on this episode by special guest Daniel Segura, of the excellent Moustachioed Podcastio to talk about a film that deals with bride kidnapping and honour killings - and it's a swinging 1960s comedy! On this episode they cover the Monica Vitti-starring film "The Girl with the Pistol" (1968). Also, as Daniel is a first-time guest, he gets to play The Movie God Game. Can Lee stump two people in a row? The hosts also talk about what they've watched as of late. So gather up your lira, get a passport and a gun, and come with us to England for some sweet, sweet revenge.
