Thank you for joining us again if you listened to our earlier podcasts or if you are new to the program, welcome! Once a week, Linda and Rebecca will take to the internet airwaves to discuss a variety of subjects, including all the latest news, movies we’ve seen recently, the Oscar season and more topics that interest us (or you! Please send us your suggestions for topics to talk about).

• 00:00 – 19:00 – Slow news week, so we dissect each and every one of BAFTA’s Rising Star longlist, as well as the high profile castings of Amber Heard in “Motor City” and Chris Evans in “The Iceman”.

• 19:00 – 25:40 – Linda talks about two movies she saw and loved this week: Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” and Cameron Crowe’s “We Bought a Zoo.”

• 25:40 – END – We discuss just a few of Australia’s many rising stars making a mark in Hollywood, from the almost-A-listers like Sam Worthington, Chris Hemsworth and Mia Wasikowska, to the barely known names like Bella Heathcote, Elizabeth Debicki and James Frecheville, and plenty in between.
