The Uma & Iain Show

UMA

Guess podcaster Umapagan Ampikaipakan

…and we’re back!…..sorta. With Gavin still away in Singapore (for the play Tribes, which is running from 22 May – 7 June 2015 at the Drama Centre Theatre Singapore), I had to source some substitutes and that took a little longer than expected. Thankfully I was able to find someone in the form of Umapagan Ampikaipakan of BFM and the Cooler Lumpur Festival who in joins me on this week’s cast to ramble about all the geeky movie, TV and comic book news of the last few months.

Also on this week’s show we review Mad Max:Fury Road, Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland and SPY starring Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and Jason Statham

Here’s the show notes for most, if not all the items we talked about on the show:
