Author Adrienne Kress joins us for our review of Shazam! now in theatres starring Zachary Levi, Djimon Hounsou, Mark Strong. We all have a superhero inside of us — it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In 14-year-old Billy Batson’s case, all he needs to do is shout out one word to transform into the adult superhero Shazam. Still a kid at heart, Shazam revels in the new version of himself by doing what any other teen would do — have fun while testing out his newfound powers. But he’ll need to master them quickly before the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana can get his hands on Shazam’s magical abilities.

We also talk with filmmaker Guillaume Braun. Guillaume recently released a 4 part docu-series for the National Film Board of Canada called Streamers. The series dives deep into the world of gamers and personalities that stream on Twitch featuring interviews with a number of folks in the Twitch community. Guillaume talks about the series which is currently available on the NFB’s Youtube Channel and Facebook Page.

It was a great show!
