Podtalk: The ‘Daniels’ on ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’

The series will undoubtedly entertain the children it’s intended for, my twins probably would have liked it if they had been able to come. But pity the poor parents who have to sit through another film full of Minion fart noises… which seems to last for roughly three whole days.
