Podcasting in the Time of Coronavirus – The Movie Robcast

Episode 86 of The Movie Robcast sees the Robs remote recording. Abiding by social distancing measures, they’re in their respective abodes, but that doesn’t stop them from covering a wide range of movie topics and other affairs of state.

Unsurprisingly, top of the list is the Coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 took quite a turn for the dramatic since the last episode, with first cinemas and theatres closing, then pubs and restaurants, then the whole country being put into lockdown.

So, Contagion and Outbreak are part of the discussion, along with thoughts on what will happen to cinema releases if the pandemic stretches into the summer.

It’s not all doom and gloom though. The Robs discuss which films will be eligible for Oscars 2021 from what managed to get a cinema release before the Coronavirus really hit. Could it be Bad Boys For Life’s year?

Rob D rhapsodises about Netflix’s GLOW, which is a real tonic in these dark times. The two also discuss what classic 007 mission they’ll accept now No Time to Die has been pushed back to November (as of writing…).

So, not even a global crisis can stop us delivering podcasts for you, so we hope you enjoy this little bit of R&R. If you like what you hear, why not leave us a review here or on Apple Podcasts here: apple.co/2T5DDMI.
