There have been a lot of things to catch up on this week’s episode. Firstly, lots of geek stuff that came out of Comic Con that Ant and Tom missed last week. Trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Deadpool were also shown and the guys take some time talking about those as well as the behind the scenes footage from Star Wars VIII: The Force Awakens as well as how much Apocalypse from the forthcoming X-Men  movie looks like Ivan Ooze from Power Rangers!

Tom is requested, by a listener, to review Night of the Living Deadpool. So he does. Talk about fan service! Ant has found a story that gets to the bottom of the Loch Ness Monster myth, once and for all. Apparently.

Things take a turn for the annoying as an old-time favourite makes a return to the headlines. It’s Katie (Kuntie) Hopkins time again! This time she’s been taking the piss out of autistic children for being fat and annoying even though she has an autistic child herself.

She’s also been comparing migrants to cockroaches and willing boats to sink in the Mediterranean to further her career. We also learn that she is, in fact, a fictional character thanks to an inquisitive Guardian journalist who gets more than her bargained for in this interview.

Speaking of right-wing nutters, the Royal Family has been embroiled in the scandal of an 80-year-old film that shows her, as a child, doing the Nazi salute with her Mother ad Edward VII. However, take it with a grain of salt as The Sun may – just may – have twisted the truth on this one.

This week’s episode starts off with a catch-up on the social interactions of the last week, including one listener’s suggestion for an improvement to beans on toast, which gets Ant and Tom talking about food and also getting fit.

There were comments on Age of Ultron, which lead on to the pictures released from the set of Suicide Squad, the trailers for Super Girl and Legends of Tomorrow.

Tom has been watching John Hughes films with Jo in the last few weeks and has conflicting views from her on certain ones, which sparks the debate; is it nostalgia that blinds you to the fact certain films date badly?

Guitarists are discussed as the documentary, ‘It Might Get Loud’, featured The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White, throwing conflicting views of certain musicians. Plus, the Edge falls off a stage while on tour!

In the real world, Kim Jong Un may or may not have executed another of his officials, while in the world of Guild Wars 2 a player found hacking the game had his avatar publicly executed.

It was a strange episode this week as Ant and Tom both space on names of people, bands and films. If this is your first taste of Anywhere But Here, please go and listen to any other episode. We’ll be back and better next week. Promise!

This week’s show is being recorded on Easter Monday as Ant spent his Birthday weekend in London watching Cats and Les Misérables. He,Liz and Chloe got to meet Kerry Ellis for the second time and, not only did she wish Ant a Happy Birthday, she remembered them too.

Tom spent all of Sunday at the local race track, Brands Hatch, to watch the British Touring Car Championship, where his iPhone battery failed him after being propositioned by a grid girl.

Ant has found a website that apathetic voters should use as a guide to which party they should vote for in the impending General Election. voteforpolicies.org.uk

Double Formula 1 World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, has decided that he’s  not happy to just be a brilliant racing driver and earn millions from sponsorship deals. He is now looking to start a recording career after splitting up from his girlfriend, Nicole Scherzinger, who he had built a recording studio for so they could spend more time together. D’oh!

Ant sent Tom the Deadpool movie script that was leaked recently. Tom read it and is reporting back on some of the good and weird points from it. Including a few strange skits involving – the then alive – Amy Winehouse.

This week Ant finally got round to seeing Star Trek Into Darkness and liked it and Tom saw Rise of the Guardians which wasn’t as bad as he had feared. Some guilty pleasures are admitted to.

Anywhere But Here, Episode 114 – Getting Things Off Our Chests

On this week’s podcast Tom wants to clear up a few things that he missed out from the story about getting a new job from last week’s show. This includes being held up in the bank he works at. Ant tells the story of his weeks, which largely revolves around the death of his pet cat. Both these stories are linked in the fact that grief or shock affect people in different ways.

Zane from One Direction has left the band this week and Jeremy Clarkson was fired from the BBC, which sparks a debate about the complexities of the situation of a talented broadcaster being fired by one corporation yet being allowed to go to another company to be allowed to make the exact same show.

Finally they get geeky and talk about the fact that X-Files has been announced as well as all the episodes of the new Daredevil show are dropping onto Netflix this month. Fox released the first picture of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, which makes Tom very happy. But, is it really Ryan Reynolds?

They end on talking about films such as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel franchise and Tom’s partial review of Chappie.

Anywhere But Here, Episode 102 – “Oh, Happy New Year!”

It’s the first ‘live’ podcast since the middle of December and, as such, Ant and Tom have a lot to get through including what their Christmas involved and what they got. This includes clothes, comics video games and podcasting equipment, some of which they are testing out today. Will there be a difference in quality? Who knows?

Ant talks about how good the Captain Marvel series is and Tom raves about a game that’s over a year old: The Last Of Us. And the age-old Marvel/DC debate rears its head again while debating the latest Lego Batman games, which is equally great.

There are heart warming stories about Pope Francis giving out 400 sleeping bags to the homeless of Rome and an app developer who used his wealth to pay off his parents mortgage for them. Sir Richard Attenborough gets a, kind of, Christmas present by having a beetle named after him.

Ant tells the story of a wolf that hasn’t been spotted for 70 years in the Grand Canyon area of Arizona. The story goes south when it turns out a hunter mistook this endangered animal for a coyote and promptly shot and killed the beast.

Tom gets confused about Ant describing the International Space Station as a fictional deity.

This is one of those shows that’s a bit rough round the edges, so thanks for sticking with us, we’ll get back to our usual low standards pretty soon, we promise. Oh, and Happy New Year!

This week, Ant and Tom are joined by a special guest – Sonya Roseman. She’s a local actress who has branched out into producing, writing and directing her own movies. She has a couple of short films in production and pre-production at the moment, one called Operation OMO about what British girls got up to while their men were fighting in the Second World War. The other is closer to Ant and Tom’s hearts: The Bluebell Hill Ghost, which you may remember from the first episode of Shipped High In Transit.

After a brief talk about politics and the recent censorship of British-made porn, Sonya talks us through the trials and tribulations of writing a film about ghost stories including bad dreams and flats being burned down! We get to hear that the indie film community around Medway is much stronger than we originally thought.We also find out who her favourite actors and directors are as well as who her dream cast would be… with surprising results.

Go find the short versions of The Ghost of Bluebell Hill on Sonya’s YouTube page and give her some feedback, the final cut of the feature-length version is still in pre-production. You can also find the trailer for Operation OMO which features Anywhere But Here’s very own Tom!

The show closes with a bit more film talk around the biopic; The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightly about the life and very sad death of Alan Turing, the genius code breaker during the Second World War. Go find sonya on Facebook and Twitter @sonyaroseman.

A lot of things are covered in this week’s podcast. Ranging all the way from the new Batmobile design that Zack Snyder released this week, what you guys thought about it and why it NEEDS guns! Also discussed are Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where the producers are going with the second series, thanks to an article by @monstersyfyshow.

Ant talks about the new Doctor Who episodes and brings a story about a grave-digger who exhumed a corpse for its relatives to pose in a photo with! Tom tells the story about a homeless woman who claims to be pregnant with Prince Harry’s baby, the same week that the Kate and William have announced their own pregnancy.

The guys talk about the inexplicable success of Kanye West and Justin Beiber when they do awful things like stop their concerts until they know the guys not dancing are definitely disabled. Lumped into this is the success of Mrs Brown’s Boys, a shit sit-com about an Irish man dressed up as a woman swearing. It doesn’t hold up in the shadow of good comedy like The Fast Show, Spaced and Black Books, but somehow there’s an audience for it? Do you know anyone who watches it and is a fan? Add your views to this discussion on Twitter and Facebook.

Ant & Tom also put forward some new ideas for a segment about watching and reviewing films or TV shows on Netflix as well as some ideas for merchandise, let us know on Twitter, Facebook or e-mail if you have ideas for the segment or if you would like to have as a t-shirt, mug, etc.

Big love goes out to all our listeners this week, but especially Robbie Polanco, David Williams, Monster SciFi Show and Weekly Geek Speak (we hope Andrew didn’t get into trouble!).
