Ni!  We demand a sacrifice of.... a shrubbery!  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, and Georgia as we're up for facing a little bit of peril in search of Camelot in Monty Python & The Holy Grail.  We question your parentage using accusations of hamsters and elderberries in our 81st episode as we discuss: 

How the Python crew decided to divide the parts up between themselves

Just how much adlibbing occurred on set

Who some of the surprising financiers of the film were

What can happen if you just rock up to the film set

The benefits and drawbacks to shooting outside

Which Python member played the most parts?

Which Python member died on screen the most

Ian talks about Postmodernism and how this film is one of the earliest champions of it in film

We share our own participation in the stage musical, Spamalot

We recite far too many lines after promising we wouldn't do that exact thing

What one line could Ian not make out as a young man due to the accent and foreign expression

How did the disruption of expectations - which the Pythons were famous for - work in this film, given it's a long-form version of storytelling?

Whether or not Monty Python & The Holy Grail is the Best Film Ever

Now go away or we shall taunt you a second time!

So how do we tell whether she is made of wood build a bridge out of her? Ah But can you not also make bridges out of stone? Oh yeah. Does wood sink in water? Oh flout. It's so we're into the pole. What also floats in water? Bright Apple's very small rocks, china great gravy, cherries, mud churches. Church led led a duck. Exactly. To logically if she weighs the same as a dark she's made of wood and therefore. Mhm. Wait
