To mark the 5th anniversary of the release of the pilot episode one for this show, we're taking you to where it all began...our host Ally Pitts's podcasting debut!
Classic Schmassic was an amazing comedy podcast about movies from before 1980. For this episode, Ally joined hosts Chris Mead & Owen Choules to discuss Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin and whether it lives up to its reputation.
You can find more about Chris and his work as an improv performer and teacher at chrismead.co.
Owen has been a guest on shows including As If: A Minute-by-Minute Clueless podcast and the Four Weddings and a Funeral episode of the brilliant Falling in Love Montage.
