We talk with actor Parker Bates. Parker plays young Kevin on This Is Us. He’ll be on to talk about the soon to be released film, Magic Max. Parker Bates stars as a young ‘Kevin Pearson’, son of ‘Rebecca’ (Mandy Moore) and ‘Jack’ (Milo Ventimiglia) in NBC’s This Is Us. He will next be seen starring opposite Barry Corbin and Ivan Sergei as ‘Tim Hart’ in Magic Max premiering January 26th, which follows a second-rate magician (Sergei) who works with a boss he hates. When his older brother dies, Max takes custody of his ten-year-old nephew (Bates) and tries his last hand at love. Apart from acting, his second passion is cooking. He has made appearances on platforms such as Buzzfeed Tasty and has published recipes in OK Magazine!

Our review of WandaVision starring Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany and Katherine Hahn. WandaVision is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.

We also talk with Elspeth McRobb (aka Sparkles) of the Felons on Film podcast. Felons on Film is a bi-weekly podcast presented by Geek Hard that looks at films based on real-life crimes. Join hosts Andrew Young and Elspeth McRobb as they see what happens when true crime meets artistic license as they explore murder and thievery on the silver screen.
