New Podcast! The Mondaylorians – “The Mandolorian: Chapter 17: Abe Lincoln’s Secret Skeleton”

This week, I had the pleasure of stopping by the podcast The Mondaylorians, hosted by Niall Glynn. I was thrilled to get to talk about the third season premiere of The Mandalorian, The Apostate.

It’s a lovely chat, full of tangents and asides, covering everything from the place of The Mandalorian in the Star Wars canon to the question of whether Jon Favreau is the nicest auteur working in Hollywood. We do also talk about the third season premiere of the show, and the various competing forces that seem to pulling it in various directions, and the question of how the show grapples with the pull of nostalgia and even if it has something to say about the current political moment. Also, we talk about the ethics of using dead bodies in statues.

Hosted by Andrew Quinn and Darren Mooney, The 250 is a (mostly) weekly trip through some of the best (and worst) movies ever made, as voted for by Internet Movie Database Users. New episodes are released every Saturday at 6pm GMT.

However, Andy actually managed to sit down with director Adam Elliot to discuss the film and his career in general. It’s a fun and wide-ranging discussion, covering a host of topics from the writer-director’s influences to his future plans to the film’s place on the list and even the difficulty securing international distribution. We hope you enjoy, and join us again on Saturday for our discussion of the film itself with Andy.
