The Rereaders Episode 68: Aussie Oscars, Good Game and Hans Zimmer

February 23, 2017

In this week’s podcast we are joined by guest critics Leena van Deventer and Dan Golding. We talk about the Australians heading to the Oscars ceremony and their chances up against the seemingly unstoppable (and certainly inescapable) La La Land. Then we look at the ABC’s recent axing of their video game program Good Game, and finally we listen to the music of Hans Zimmer ahead of his upcoming tour of Australia.
