Ep420: Brand Practice

Today, The Kicking the Seat Podcast and Nick Allen of RogerEbert.com come together to discuss Danny Boyle's new rom-com/fantasy, Yesterday! Himesh Patel stars as Jack, a struggling young musician who gets hit by a bus and wakes up in a world that has never heard of The Beatles.

Ian and Nick dig into the alternate realities Yesterday could have explored, and debate whether Boyle and screenwriter Richard Curtis delivered the best timeline. This long and winding chat also encompasses pop oddity Ed Sheeran, audience participation, and gaudy corporate greed! Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

Also, Ian talks about two recent Beatles-themed Blu-ray releases: I Wanna Hold Your Hand, from the Criterion Collection, and Backbeat from Shout! Factory! Lastly, the new 90 Under 90 Podcast finds Ian waxing profane with Jeremy and Dan Eden about the 20th anniversary of South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut!

Episode 420 would like to be under the sea!
