Failed Critics Podcast: London Film Festival 2017 Special

Welcome to another episode of the Failed Critics Podcast as hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes are joined by Callum Petch, fresh from this year’s London Film Festival.

We kick off the podcast with a chat about the ins and outs of the Festival itself as Callum explains what it’s like being one of them proper critics that they have in London.
